A defective airbag component has led to the recent recall of over three million motor vehicles produced by multiple car manufacturers. The manufacturers of the defective product include: Toyota, Honda, General Motors and Nissan. The motor vehicles involved in the recall were manufactured by these companies between 2000 and 2004.
The defective airbag product can explode and cause dangerous shrapnel to enter the vehicle. This product defect could potentially cause serious personal injuries to the driver and passengers.
The auto manufacturers promptly issued the product recall out of safety concerns, and likely in the hopes of avoiding the payment of significant civil penalties and defending against numerous potential personal injury, product liability lawsuits. In 2010, Toyota paid nearly $50 million in civil penalties after the company failed to provide timely notice of safety issues regarding its products to the U.S. Department of Transportation.
