NHTSA says nearly 90% of vehicles with defective Takata air bags have not been repaired.

The Legal Examiner (4/20) reports NHTSA said in February that nearly 90% of vehicles “with defective Takata air bags had still not been repaired.” These air bags “may explode upon deployment, sending shrapnel into the interior of the vehicle and potentially causing serious injuries and even death.” With only about two million of the affected 17 million recalled vehicles repaired, NHTSA “is now considering taking additional steps to speed up the process of getting new air bag inflators into consumers’ vehicles.”
