Airbag producer Takata and at least 10 automakers are facing a class action lawsuit in the U.S. for selling hazardous vehicles, an article on the BBC News reported October 28.
A lawsuit filed in a district court in Florida claims that the Japanese airbag maker and 10 other automakers including General Motors and Honda intentionally did not inform the public of the possible risks linked to the airbags that are installed in their vehicles. Passengers reportedly may suffer serious or even deadly injuries from metal shards ejected from bursting airbags. There were already four incidents of death and dozens of injuries that are being linked to this malfunction. An estimated 8 million vehicles are currently being recalled in the U.S. after an intensive investigation was conducted by federal safety regulators.
