About 1.4 million cars will be recalled due to Takata airbags


Takata, a major supplier of airbags, stated that it was necessary to fix an additional 1.4 million cars because of a defect associated with a malfunction of the airbags.

Takata airbag supplied by the five largest automakers in the world, can absorb moisture, which ultimately leads to rupture or incomplete inflation of the airbag. The faulty parts were produced in the period from 1995 to 1999 and was installed on a BMW, Audi, Toyota, Honda and Mitsubishi Motors.

Previously, the company BMW has announced several times reviews, covering about 116 thousand cars in the USA, containing data elements, and recommended that about 8 thousand of them drive as long as they do not visit the service center.


According to the press service of the National administration of road safety, the automaker is aware of one fatal case and one injury in Australia associated with faulty airbags and another trauma in Cyprus. The company said NHTSA in November that he had not received reports of such incidents in the United States.

Recall that the Japanese company has supplied tens of millions of defective airbags for many years. The accident resulted in metal fragments of the squibs hurt or kill vehicle occupants. The company pleaded guilty and as part of the settlement of this matter with the Ministry of justice, the United States paid the sum of 1 billion U.S. dollars.
