Faulty Takata air bags force industry-wide recalls
    2017-July-10  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

FAW Car Co., a partner of Japan’s Mazda Motor, will recall over 680,000 Mazda cars due to issues with air bags that were supplied by embattled Japanese auto parts supplier Takata Corp.

The recall includes Mazda 6 vehicles manufactured in China between September 2008 and January 2016, the General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine said Friday.

The regulator said the issue was related to dangerous defects in the air bag inflator on the passenger side, and follows an earlier recall of 280,000 Mazda 6 models manufactured between 2003 and 2008 for a similar issue.

The General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine has also asked foreign firms General Motors, Daimler’s Mercedes-Benz and Volkswagen to fulfil their obligations to recall vehicles in China affected by faulty Takata air bags.

The three foreign carmakers have to date only proposed recalling a small number of vehicles for testing and analysis instead of providing recall plans, the regulator said Friday.

Takata filed for bankruptcy in Japan and the United States last month, burdened with tens of billions in liabilities related to a decade of recalls and lawsuits over faulty air bags supplied to some of the world’s biggest auto brands.

On Friday, the Chinese regulator said that it estimated that more than 20 million cars in China were equipped with the air bags made by Takata, which have been linked to at least 16 deaths and 180 injuries around the world.

Of 37 car manufacturers affected by the faulty air bag issue in China, 24 had already recalled 10.59 million cars by the end of June while another five had made plans to recall a further 1.26 million vehicles, it said.(SD-Agencies)
