The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) will conduct an engineering analysis of an additional 30 million cars with airbags from the Japanese company Takata, the reason is potentially faulty pyrotechnic gas generator cartridges. This was reported on September 20 by Reuters.
Cars manufactured by Toyota, Honda, Nissan, Subaru, Mazda, Ford, General Motors, Chrysler, BMW, Daimler AG, Porsche, Jaguar Land Rover, Ferrari, Tesla and others manufactured between 2001 and 2019 will fall under investigation year.
Recall that the worldwide Takata scandal happened in 2016-2017. The company’s airbags incorrectly deployed and scattered small fragments, resulting in 28 deaths worldwide and more than 400 injuries.
More than 100 million cars have been recalled worldwide to replace defective components – this is the largest auto safety service campaign in history. Due to the scandal, Takata went bankrupt, its assets were bought by the Chinese corporation Key Safety Systems in 2017.
