Victims granted an unusual role in bankruptcy proceedings.

Tens of billions of dollars in liabilities.

Bankruptcy opens the door to a financial rescue from U.S.-based auto parts supplier Key Safety Systems, which Takata tapped as its preferred financial sponsor as it must keep churning out millions of replacement airbag inflators.

Honda reiterated its position that it did not conceal knowledge of Takata defects, but instead was itself a victim of deception by Takata officials.

Takata would stop producing airbag inflators after it completes production of replacement parts and fulfills existing supply contracts, likely around 2020.

Fuji Heavy Industries, the maker of Subaru cars, Mitsubishi Motors and truck maker Hino also recalled a total of about 240,000 vehicles in Japan over inflators made by Takata Cor

The problem is not related to the other Takata fiasco.

Ford Edge and Lincoln MKX and Continental models are being recalled.

Takata admitted it intentionally hid the fact that its airbag inflators could explode.

The list includes the Ford GT, Mustang, and Fusion.

This recall only affects passenger side airbags.

If you receive a recall notice, please make repairs a priority.
