has made a lot of progress with existing recall repairs because plenty of replace airbag inflators are available. The 77.7 percent completion rate out of nearly 13 million recalled vehicles has allowed Honda to issue the recall now instead of waiting until December.An automaker that’s actually ahead of schedule on a recall? What world is this?…
Takata's chapter 11 bankruptcy plan has been approved by a Delaware judge.
While that means some reorganization, pay-offs for creditors, yadda yadda etc ... the dollar figure I was interested in involves how much is being set aside for injury victims.
The action makes official the agreement that requires the airbag manufacturer to pay $850 million to help automakers cover some of the cost for airbag recalls. Another $125 million will be paid to compensate drivers injured by exploding airbags.
The plan also includes a "channeling injunction" for future victims. Unfortunately I don't see any mention of compensation for the families of people killed by the inflators, but I'm sure we'll see future litigation in those cases.keep reading article "Takata's Bankruptcy Has Been Improved. What Does That Mean for Victims?"
It's a new year, so we're out with the old and in with the ... ahh, crap. There's another Takata recall for Honda owners? 2018 ... 2017 ... it's all the same.
This recall involves 717,000 vehicles which, I believe, brings the grand total of recalled vehicles to 72 quadrillion or so.

The Takata airbag inflators are at risk of exploding due to the metal inflators that contain the explosive chemical, ammonium nitrate. The chemical can become unstable due to heat, time and moisture, something that has already killed at least 21 people worldwide, most of those deaths occurring in Honda vehicles.
Your vehicle might be involved in one of the largest and most dangerous recalls in automotive history. Honda is recalling 2.2 million vehicles with PSDI-5 Takata inflators.
You've probably heard about Takata by now. They're the ones responsible for airbag inflators that explode with too much force, sometimes sending metal shrapnel flying throughout the cabin. They're also the ones that have been linked to a number of deaths and injuries.
The good news here is that these particular inflators (PSDI-5) don't have the same history of rupturing. The bad news is replacement parts aren't expected to be available until later this year.
Needless to say, Takata isn't going to make anyone's holiday card list.keep reading article "PSDI-5 Takata Inflators Recalled in 2.2 Million Honda Vehicles"
