NHTSA: Automakers need to fix Takata airbag issue
Takata is to blame for the faulty airbags used in millions of vehicles. Even so, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) recently said it is the “ultimate responsibility” of automakers to take the steps necessary to fix their vehicles, a November 3 article of Fortune stated.
On November 2, the head of the NHTSA said automakers might not be working properly to fix all of their vehicles that may still be using Takata airbags. Honda is currently the automaker with the most vehicles in need of a fix. Honda, on the other hand, said they are reaching out to owners of older vehicles that have potentially hazardous airbags. The Japanese airbag manufacturer was pressured by the NHTSA to issue a recall after confirming their airbags could explode during accidents and cause serious injuries to vehicle occupants.
