BMW, FCA, Ford, Honda, Mitsubishi All Affected

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration is starting to announce the expanded Takata airbag inflator recalls. FCA has over 5 million vehicles affected worldwide, and BMW has over 420,000 in the US. Honda's expansion includes 350,000 more Civics and Accords.

Takata is pushing hard to increase its global production of replacement airbag inflators to 900,000 units, while automakers begin looking elsewhere.
