Takata Air Bag Recall

Takata Corp. (TYO:7312), the Japanese maker of vehicle safety parts used by auto manufacturers, is only now beginning to realize the immense cost it’s going to pay for selling faulty airbags to at least 10 different automakers dating to at least as far back as 2001. These safety bags can rupture when they’re deployed and spray bits of metal into drivers and front-seat passengers, making worse whatever injuries the components were meant to avert. 

NOTE: Scroll down for the full searchable list of cars with Takata-airbag related problems that have been identified up to Aug. 7.
Acura, BMW, Ford, Honda, Infiniti, Lexus, Mitsubishi, Nissan, Pontiac,Saab, Subaru, Toyota.
