"The Largest Recall in Automotive History"

On May 19, 2015 air bag manufacturer Takata acknowledged that a defect exists in its air bag inflators.  In a press release issued by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA),  Takata agreed to recall approximately 34 million vehicles — a number that is roughly double the number of vehicles previously identified.
This recall involves ELEVEN auto manufacturers; BMW, Chrysler, Daimler, Ford, General Motors, Honda, Mazda, Mitsubishi, Nissan, Subaru and Toyota all have vehicles affected by the massive recall; specific model years are still being determined and will continue to be added to the NHTSA VIN lookup.
Mark Rosekind, NHTSA Administrator, said “As far as we know, this is the largest recall in auto history.”
