Toyota, Nissan Recall a Combined 6.5 Million Vehicles Over Takata Exploding Airbag Defect

Takata Airbag Recall Lawyers

Japanese auto makers Toyota and Nissan announced the recall today of over 6.5 million vehicles due to the risk of faulty airbags exploding, leading to serious injury or worse.

The airbags, manufactured by Tokyo-based company Takata, have already been linked to numerous deaths.

Toyota’s recall affects 35 models worldwide that were produced between model years between 2003 and 2007.

Nissan’s recall affects 1.56 million of its vehicles globally.

These latest recalls are putting 2015 on pace to beat the record-setting recall year of 2014.

This dubious record is one that auto manufacturers worldwide should be ashamed of–and act accordingly.

Instead, they are busy doing the opposite by using a powerful lobbying group and the Digital Millenium Copyright Act (DMCA) to push the idea that you don’t really own your vehicle anyway.

Not very encouraging.
