The case of the airbags defective Takata does not cease to bring us, each time, new surprises. The firm has already announced it will declare bankruptcy, and also reported that they have a firm offer of a company to gain control of the affiliates healthy company. However, today keep coming up, new calls to review that make us ask ourselves if things have been done really well.
According to the latest opinion of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) have discovered another 2.7 million cars more with airbags are defective. The brands that would be affected by this massive call to review are Ford, Mazda and Nissan and the units would have been manufactured between the years 2005 and 2012. However, none of the three companies have been reported which models may be affected and how many units they touch to each one.
The problem that would be detected would be associated with the trigger pyrotechnics that causes the inflation of the airbag when it jumps. In this case, his power would be limited so that the inflation of the bag would be insufficient or would be of irregular shape. For this reason the driver may suffer serious injury to hit your head against the central area of the steering wheel or part of the dashboard.
As reported by Takata, have carried out several tests to determine which models of these brands are affected, but until today have not yet been found. In addition, also lack by determining the global scope of this new call to review because the voice of alarm has given the NHTSA because they have been discovered in the united States. However, these marks could have brought some of these models to Europe.
therefore, there is that be pending if it is concrete a call for official review in our continent to verify the airbags of these brands and what models to perform this review. In the meantime, it is wise to take care when driving to avoid at all can result in a serious accident.
