After losing its fight with the NHTSA, Ford recalls 3 million vehicles equipped with defective airbags. Yes, the same Takata that manufactured defective airbags from earlier recalls.

Ford recalls 3 million vehicles due to defective airbags
As reported by USAtoday.com, Ford’s hand was forced on the recall of 2.7 million vehicles in the U.S. at a cost of $610 million because federal regulators rejected the company’s request to avoid a recall.

After considering the request, NHTSA concluded that the ammonium nitrate propellant used to inflate the driver’s airbags was showing signs of decay and posed a safety risk.Read More
