The Takata air bag recall continues to grow, causing trouble for automakers and consumers from one side of the world to the next.
It was recently reported that a minimum of 400,000 vehicles already repaired under an initial recall will require another recall. This was due to the use of a potentially defective propellant wafer in some replacement driver-side inflators.
Last week, Honda Motor Co announced an expansion of a previous recall that will cover approximately five million vehicles. Along with this, Mazda recently announced another round of recalls.
A defective Takata air bag can inflate with too much force, thus spewing shrapnel throughout the vehicle’s cabin. This has led to a massive recall that continues to drag on.
If a person is injured by this type of defective car part, they should consider the legal options available for receiving the appropriate compensation.
