Takata Air Bag Recall Doubles in Size - Is My Car One of the 63 Million Impacted?

Posted by Dev Sethi | May 04, 2016 | 0 Comments

Federal safety regulators have announced a mass expansion of the ongoing Takata airbag recall.  At least 35 million additional airbags made by the auto parts supplier Takata need to be fixed.  This more than doubles the scope of what was already the largest automotive recall in American history.

The airbags have a documented danger of unintentionally and unexpectedly exploding, throwing off metal parts and shrapnel.  At least 11 deaths and many more injuries have been linked to the safety defect.
