Federal Safety Regulators Warning Owners Of Hondas And Acuras To Immediately Stop Driving Their Cars Until Their Takata Airbags Are Replaced.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has released its new study saying that tests show that some cars have airbags that have a 50% chance of exploding.
Usually, that percentage is just 1% chance for other airbags.
“The risk posed by the airbag inflators in these vehicles is grave, and it is critical they be repaired now to avoid more deaths and serious injuries,” said the agency’s statement.
Nearly 70 million airbags in U.S. cars will be recalled as part of a massive safety scandal enveloping Takata since 2014.
The faulty airbags spread across 13 different automakers, including all of the major ones. Honda and its luxury Acura is by far the most affected by the recall.
