Takata may be forced to recall another 85 million inflators

On April 13, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration announced that Takata will be ordered to replace another 85 million airbag inflators inside U.S. vehicles if the Japanese company cannot prove they are safe. Takata has already recalled 28.8 million inflators across the nation, including in Oklahoma. The recall is the largest automotive recall in U.S. history.

Recall could impact thousands of Volkswagen owners

Oklahoma residents may be interested to know that in March 2016, Volkswagen and Porsche recalled 800,000 of their vehicles because of faulty clips used in braking systems. The affiliated companies said that a clip on the brake pad may be missing, which could lead to a pivot pin becoming loose and allowing the pedal itself to move or become dislodged. This could impact a driver's ability to apply the brakes, and faulty brakes could contribute to a serious car crash.
