Japanese Automakers Recall 3.3 Million Vehicles

Vehicle defects can be dangerous for drivers and passengers, resulting in injuries or deaths.

According to a recent article in The New York Times, about 1.4 million Japanese manufactured vehicles in the United States are subject to recall due to faulty airbags on the driver’s side. The airbags are capable of forcefully deploying, hurling shards of metal into the passenger’s area. The automakers Honda, Toyota, Nissan and Mazda are recalling a total of 3.3 million cars worldwide.

Since 2008, Honda had problems with airbags that deployed with excessive force and previously recalled two million driver's side airbags. Passenger-side airbags are not an issue because their deployment mechanism is different. Their deployment sends metal fragments toward the windshield or the floor of passenger’s side the car. The Takata Corporation that manufactured the airbags also sold defective airbags to General Motors (GM) and BMW. Consequently, GM is recalling 48,000 Pontiac Vibes.

    This law firm helped me get the VA to classify my husband as 100% disabled from an injury he suffered while in the Navy which later gave rise to Parkinson's. They're very good.
