Airbag recall nearly doubles to largest auto recall ever

In general, consumers have a reasonable expectation that the everyday products that they use will not harm them. Airbag maker Takata recently announced that it is nearly doubling its recall of defective airbags. The already expansive recall will now hold the title of the most significant and largest auto recall in history. The expanded recall now impacts almost one in seven automobiles in the United States. The company previously recalled approximately 18 million vehicles for the auto defect and the recently announced additions will increase the number of airbags recalled to approximately 34 million vehicles. Many different models of vehicles, primarily built from 2000 to 2011, are impacted.

Dispute over defective car parts grows more contentious

Like car owners across the globe, those in Roanoke City have been keeping a close eye on the product recall car companies have been implementing for problems with airbags. When motor vehicles are purchased, there's an inherent belief that they will be properly constructed and safe. When there is an automobile design defect, it's often not a matter of it being a small issue that can be repaired without the risk of harm. Given the fact that vehicles are on the road with other vehicles, an accident because of a defective auto part can be fatal.

Defective auto part recall based on location called into question

For people in Virginia, a product recall of automobiles is something to keep a close eye on. These problems that are attributed to a defective auto part or an automobile design defect can cause severe injuries and even fatalities. Because the safety of a vehicle hinges on the functionality of the car parts, any national recall - even one that is limited to certain geographical regions - must be watched closely by people across the entire country.
