    Report: It turns out Takata isn't willing to expand airbag recall nationally after all
    2014-12-03

    There have been "approximately 0.000006 failures per air bag deployment, which is far below the failure rate" of most recalls, Takata claims.

    2014-11-22

    The impact of 2014 – henceforth known as Year of the Recalls – will have long-ranging consequences on the auto industry.

    Report: Honda execs take 'quality-related' pay cut after Fit Hybrid's 5th recall
    2014-10-23

    Generally, the best policy in life is to admit when you're wrong and just accept the consequences. However, that attitude generally seems to be a bit less common in the world of business – at least without some government or legal prodding. So, it's especially surprising to learn that top Honda executives in Japan are taking a pay cut for the next ...

    We generally take certain principals for granted. The more water you drink, for example, the healthier you'll be. The more time you spend reading car news on Autoblog, the better informed you'll be. And the more airbags your car has, the safer you'll be. Because airbags equal safety. But that's not what some unfortunate drivers of vehicles equipped with ...

    2014-07-31

    New cars under recall must be repaired before a dealer can sell them but used cars are under no such mandate.

In one camp: those who disclose as little as possible. Used-car giant CarMax ...
