Takata airbag recall may soon embroil GM
The problem, for those of you just joining, revolves around the Japanese company's airbags, which have been found to deploy unexpectedly in specific geographical regions – namely those with a high level of humidity. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration started investigating the issue following reports of unwarranted airbag deployment in Florida and Puerto Rico, leading to the recall of millions of vehicles.
To date, those recalls have involved Japanese automakers such as Honda, Toyota, Nissan, Mazda, Subaru and Mitsubishi, as well as Ford, Chrysler and BMW. GM's addition to the list would only stand to expand the number of recalled vehicles considerably, although Reuters reports that the exact number has yet to be determined.
