Toyota adds 601000 vehicles to Takata air bag recalls in US

Toyota adds 601000 vehicles to Takata air bag recalls in US

A Mazda Motor Corp spokeswoman said on Thursday the company would conduct a similar recall and stop-drive warning for some 2006 Mazda B-Series trucks, which were built by Ford and are similar to the Ranger. Like so many others, Tesla has been caught up in this mess and, coordinating the the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), announced a recall of 2012 Model S vehicles in January of 2017 to replace the passenger-side air bag.

Ford Motor Company has identified approximately 3,000 2006 model year Ranger vehicles in North America with airbag inflators that pose higher risk of rupturing in the event of a crash.

The Japanese supplier's US subsidiary filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy last June as part of a court-approved agreement to sell its remaining assets to Key Safety Systems. Just remember that in the Takata air bag recalls, there are priority groups; parts are only available for certain vehicles starting at certain dates.

The NHTSA in November had stated that 19 automakers had recalled over 46 million inflators in 34 million U.S. vehicles - and by 2019 as many as 70 million U.S. inflators will have been recalled. "It is extremely important that all high-risk air bags are tracked down and replaced immediately", NHTSA spokeswoman Karen Aldana said. Its inflators can explode with too much force and hurl shrapnel.

In 2017, prosecutors in Detroit charged three former senior Takata executives with falsifying test results to hide the inflator defect.

Automakers have struggled to get enough replacement parts for the massive recalls.

You can find a full list of recalled vehicles on Consumer Reports' website. The inflators only become defective with age, so the recall schedule should see affected vehicles fixed before they become a safety risk. A subsequent inspection indicated that the airbag's inflator ruptured, killing the driver.
