On January 8, Takata, the auto airbag supplier, launched a new round of recalls, involving 10 million vehicles, foreign media reported. Audi, BMW, Honda, Daimler, Fiat & middot; Chrysler, Ferrari, Ford, general motors, Mazda, Mitsubishi, Nissan, Subaru, Toyota and Volkswagen have all been affected.
Takata air bag recall has been carried out for seven years, with a recall number of up to 100 million vehicles, creating the largest safety recall event in the history of the automobile industry, and it has brought irreparable harm to some users. Up to now, at least 23 people in the world have died of Takata air bag charging device failure, including 15 people in the United States and another 230 injured.
After years of the recalls, many believe potential threat of the Takata airbags has been addressed, but it has not.
The reason for the recall of the 10 million cars is also very silent. In the first recall cars, Gao Tian replaced the new propellant, which is exactly the same as the hidden gas propellant, and claimed that it had been repaired.
At that time, takada thought that due to time, humidity and temperature, gas propellant had problems, so a new one was the best solution, but it was obviously wrong.
Takata has been shut down and acquired by other companies because of the airbag recall, but its impact is still spreading between car companies and car owners.
