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.
