On Tuesday, Takata Corp. conceded to pressures to recall millions of vehicles for defective and potentially deadly airbags. The corporation agreed to a sweeping recall of 34 million vehicles, making this the largest automobile recall in history.
Automakers included in the massive recall are Honda, Nissan, Fiat Chrysler, Toyota, BMW, Mazda, Ford, Daimler Trucks, General Motors, Subaru and Mitsubishi. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) is advising drivers to check if their vehicle is included in the recall.

The defective airbag has been shown to explode violently, causing it to rupture and send metal fragments into a car, increasing the chance for injury during a car accident.
For years the Japanese supplier refused to acknowledge the problems with its product and failed to fully cooperate with investigations into the situation. The NHTSA was fining the company $14,000 per day for their lack of support for the investigation.
Now, the crisis has ballooned into chaos. The manufacturer, automakers and regulators are concerned that the scale of the recall may make it difficult to replace all of the defective airbags in a timely manner.
