Car owners look for ways to deal with replacement delays for Takata airbags.

The Los Angeles Times (4/19, White, 4.1M) reports that as the growing scale of the Takata recall has meant some car owners will have to wait months for a replacement. The Times writes that some dealerships are offering rentals, while “some need to be pushed into offering them, customers complain.” The Times also mentions that “drivers under age 25 or with weak insurance coverage or credit say they are encountering snags when they get to the rental counter.” The Times notes that the NHTSA said last week that the recall may be expanded if Takata cannot prove the safety of airbags in cars currently considered safe.
