Sadly the airbag – the very thing designed to SAVE lives – has now been responsible for a number of deaths and serious injuries.
In one of the largest car recalls in history, over 100 million cars have been recalled worldwide to replace the defective and potentially fatal airbags manufactured by Japanese auto supplier Takata – this includes 2.3 million cars in Australia of which only 850,000 have so far been addressed over the last 2 years.
Due to deterioration, the inflators in these airbags can rupture upon deployment, projecting metal fragments through the airbag – resulting in serious injury and even death.
