Vehicle Recall: Honda
Honda has expanded a recall of its vehicles made from 2001 to 2006 because the airbags could explode. That’s on top of the five million cars Honda has already recalled over the defect. Those airbags are made by a Japanese company named TAKATA. According to The New York Times, the move comes amid disturbing allegations that TAKATA knew a decade ago that its airbags were potentially lethal to drivers and passengers. TAKATA airbags are found in at least 10 brands of cars…Resulting in recalls of nearly 8 million vehicles due to the faulty airbags. At issue are incidents of the airbags sending metal fragments hurtling toward drivers and passengers. One car safety group says exploding airbags are responsible for four deaths.
