Over 14 Million Vehicles Recalled by Multiple Automakers
According to a New York Times report, more than 14 million vehicles with airbags manufactured by Japanese company Takata have been recalled. Multiple injuries and fatalities have been linked to the airbags exploding and sending shrapnel flying into the cabin. Automakers involved in this recall include BMW, Chrysler, Ford, Honda, Mazda, Nissan, Toyota, and Mitsubishi. Certain vehicles located in Florida, Hawaii, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands have been recalled, as the issue is suggested to be due to consistent heat and humidity, according to NHTSA.
