Takata recalling 10M more inflators
DETROIT — Takata is recalling 10 million more front air bag inflators sold to 14 different automakers because they can explode with too much force and hurl shrapnel.
The recall is the last one the bankrupt company agreed to in a 2015 settlement with the U.S. safety regulators. It could bring to a close the largest series of automotive recalls in U.S. history.
The inflators are part of the 70 million in the U.S. that Takata was to recall as part of the agreement with National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
Vehicles made by Audi, BMW, Honda, Daimler Vans, Fiat Chrysler, Ferrari, Ford, GM, Mazda, Mitsubishi, Nissan, Subaru, Toyota and Volkswagen are affected.
