The U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration is conducting inspections in connection with suspicions that about 30 million cars could have potentially faulty airbags from the Japanese company Takata installed. The Reuters news agency reported this.
Its journalists got acquainted with the internal documentation of the regulator, which indicates the conduct of this trial. We are talking about cars produced by about 20 companies for the 2001-2019 model years. These manufacturers were notified about the inspections. Officially, they have not yet been reported.
Among the manufacturers are Honda Motor, Ford Motor, Toyota Motor, General Motors, Nissan, Subaru, Tesla, Mazda, BMW, and others.
Takata was at the center of a scandal in 2014. As experts of the U.S. regulatory authorities have established, airbags made by a Japanese company due to a malfunction in an accident may not open correctly but burst or shoot at people in the car with pieces of metal. Due to such incidents, more than 20 people were killed in the world; hundreds were injured. At least 100 million cars of different brands were recalled worldwide, and in 2017 Takata announced the beginning of bankruptcy proceedings.
