Toyota, Honda and Nissan Announce Defective Airbag Recall

Posted By The Carlson Law Firm || 12-Apr-2013

A serious recall involving defective airbags was announced by three major Japanese auto manufacturers on Thursday, affecting almost 3.5 million vehicles sold across the world.

According to the companies, the front passenger air bags could potentially rupture when deployed, causing serious injury or wrongful death to occupants.

The models of Nissan, Toyota and Honda vehicles affected by the airbag recall included vehicles manufactured between 2001 and 2003. Honda recalled more than 1 million vehicles with potentially bad air bags. On the other hand, more than 1.7 million Toyota vehicles were included in the recall announcement, adding to the auto maker’s recall and defect woes.

Too much pressure in the faulty airbags can cause them to be ruptured. The airbags were all manufactured by the same Japanese equipment manufacturer: Takata Corp.

While auto recalls are an important part of notifying consumers about potentially dangerous auto equipment defects, they don’t always come as soon as flaws are discovered. Instead, unnecessary injuries, accidents and wrongful death sometimes bring auto defects to light.
