NHTSA calling for massive national recall of vehicles equipped with Takata air bags
The US National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has said in a recent statement that it is calling for a country-wide recall of vehicles equipped with defective air bags manufactured by Japanese firm Takata.
The national recall of vehicles built with potentially risky air bags will likely affect approximately 30 million vehicles in the US; and will probably be one of the country biggest-ever vehicle recalls. Such a massive recall could probably overwhelm the automakers' ability to replace the defective Takata air bags.
According to the NHTSA, the air-bags manufactured by Takata are used in the vehicles of at least 10 automakers, including General Motors, Honda, Ford, Toyota, BMW, Chrysler, Mazda, Mitsubishi, Nissan, and Subaru.
About the massive national recall of vehicles over defective Takata airbags, NHTSA Deputy Administrator David Friedman said in a statement that the federal auto safety agency is aware of the fact - with an earlier recall was limited only to around 8 million vehicles, mostly in humid regions - millions of vehicles across the US have to be recalled to address defective Takata air bags.
Asserting that the NHTSA's "aggressive investigation is far from over," Friedman said: "We're pushing Takata and all affected manufacturers to issue the recall and to ensure the recalls capture the full scope of the problems."
