Ugh, Takata – amirite?
The automakers are sick of it. I’m sick of it. I sure as heck know you’re sick of it too. But here we are – staring down another recall of 152,000 Nissan and Infiniti vehicles.
By now I’m guessing you’ve heard about the dangers of Takata airbags, but here’s a quick recap:
- Over time Takata airbag inflators are susceptible to moisture.
- When that moisture mixes with the airbag’s propellant, the inflators become unstable and can explode sending shrapnel throughout the cabin.
- The problem is responsible for 11 deaths in the USA alone.
Mazda has now recalled more than 1 million vehicles for this problem. Find out if yours is on the most recent list.
