The Takata scandal started a few years ago and people are still working to clean up the mess Takata made with their faulty airbags. NHTSA has just announced that Takata will have to declare 2.7 million of their air bag inflators as defective.
According to NHTSA, new testing has resulted in them prompting Takata to recall some driver side airbags as well. The ones that are affected right now are the ones that were built from 2012 to 2015 and will affect automakers like Nissan, Ford and Mazda.
Nissan will have to recall a total of 627,000 units of their Nissan Versa cars made from 2007 to 2012. Ford, on the other hand, reported that the issue will affect about 2.2 million units of Ford vehicles but did add that they are not aware of any incidents and that test data does not suggest that there is an issue.
Mazda is the least impacted automaker as they will only have to recall 6000 units of their B-Series trucks.
