In yet another recall, Takata is recalling 10 million more front air bag inflators sold to 14 different automakers. The reason for the recall is because the airbags can explode with way too much force causing shrapnel to expel and injuries to occur.
The recall is the last one the company agreed to in a 2015 settlement as part of the largest series of recalls in U.S. history.
The 10 million in this recall are part of the 70 million in the US that Takata was to recall overall.
Vehicles made by Audi, BMW, Honda, Daimler Vans, Fiat Chrysler, Ferrari, Ford, General Motors, Mazda, Mitsubishi, Nissan, Subaru, Toyota and Volkswagen are included.
Automakers will alert consumers as to the years and the models affected.
