Takata Airbags Bring Problems Again; General Motors Co., Daimler AG's Mercedes-Benz, BMW AG, Jaguar Land Rover And A Whole Lot More Feel The Heat
The battle is not yet over for Takata. Recent news and updates have implied that the issues pertaining to safety of the airbags have affected General Motors Co., Daimler AG's Mercedes-Benz, BMW AG, Jaguar Land Rover and a whole lot more.
It seems that these segments might need to implement certain measures to keep things afloat. To prove the latter, six automakers stated that they are recalling nearly 2.5 million U.S. vehicles with defective Takata air bag inflators, reports The Globe and Mail.
These recalls include 1.9 million SUVs and trucks from General Motors Co, along with the recall of 217,000 vehicles from Volkswagen AG, 200,000 from Daimler AG's Mercedes-Benz USA units, 92,000 from BMW AG, 54,000 from Jaguar Land Rover and 5,100 from Daimler Vans USA, according to the same report.
Owing to the rising issues, even GM spokesman Tom Wilkinson said, "It can be modified based on additional research. The total number of vehicles and potential schedule for recalls will be determined accordingly."
A former article posted by iTech Post has already revealed how other brands have begun their recalls as well. According to the post, Toyota Motors has confirmed that it will indeed implement the recall of almost 1.6 million additional U.S. vehicles for front passenger side that has the Takata air bag inflators.
