More recalls for embattled car makers as Takata extend the list of potential customers
Takata Corporation the auto parts maker, said potentially defective air bag inflators, that could explode sending shrapnel around the cabin of affected cars were also shipped to Japanese car makers Subaru and Mitsubishi Motors.
Over the last few weeks Toyota, Mazda, Nissan and Honda have begun to examine the problem and some have started public recalls.
In the U.S. the National Highway Traffic safety association (NHTSA) opened an investigation earlier this month into whether Takata inflators that were made after 2002 were prone to fail, and whether driving in high humidity contributed toward a risk of air bag explosions.
There’s no word as to how this may effect Irish drivers, if in doubt contact your local main dealer.
