Saab 9-2x Airbag Takata

NHTSA revised and increased its estimate of cars affected by a recall of airbags made by Takata, one of world’s leading airbag and seat belt manufactures, to 6.1 million — a 1.4 million increase.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration on Tuesday updated the total number of cars and trucks in the U.S. with airbags made by Takata that should be fixed as soon as possible.

NHTSA said 10 automotive manufacturers have issued recalls to date affecting 6.1 million vehicles in the U.S. with potentially defective airbag inflators.

That’s much higher than the 4.6 million vehicles NHTSA said were included in recalls by six manufacturers in a statement on Monday. Automakers that have recalled vehicles with airbags made by Takata include: BMW, Chrysler, Ford, General Motors (Saab), Honda, Mazda, Mitsubishi, Nissan, Subaru and Toyota.
