Who are at Risks of Defective Airbags?
The NHTSA has recommended that owners of 7.8 million models from various manufacturers replace air bags supplied by Takata. The airbags, which can explode in a flurry of shrapnel even after a minor accident, have caused at least six deaths and more than 100 injuries.
Manufacturers involved include the following:
- General Motors
“Responding to these recalls, whether old or new, is essential to personal safety and it will help aid our ongoing investigation into Takata airbags and what appears to be a problem related to extended exposure to consistently high humidity and temperatures,” NHTSA Deputy Administrator David Friedman said in a statement. A total of more than 14 million vehicles from 11 automakers have been recalled over Takata airbags, most in the last two years, the New York Times reports.
General Motors Lawsuits
General Motors was among the list of manufacturers that recalled certain vehicles for defective airbags. Approximately 30,000 year 2013 and 2014 Chevy Cruze vehicles were among this recall due to airbags that were supplied by the manufacturer, Takata. In addition, GM issued a recall due to ignition switch problems that affected certain Chevy, Pontiac, and Saturn vehicles. As early as 2001, GM knew about ignition problems in various vehicles; however, no recall officially took place until 2014.
