Takata Defective Airbag Recall

Yesterday both Toyota and Nissan separately announced recalls of their vehicles that had potentially defective airbags installed.  Collectively the automakers recalled nearly seven million vehicles worldwide, with approximately half a million from the US alone.  This new batch of recalls falls on top of the existing Takata Corp recall of twenty-five million vehicles worldwide.  The recalls have been called in the wake of six deaths associated with airbag explosions.  Toyota reported that the defect appeared to involve moisture leaking into the airbag containment area, making the inflators prone to unstable deployment.
