Re: Takata Airbag Recall for 2015s

There has been massive media coverage of the millions of motor vehicles being recalled due to defective Takata inflators. At one point, the company was being fined daily by the NHTSA and the media accounts implied the company was not cooperating with investigators.

You would think that GM would NOT buy inflators from Takata for their new vehicles. I guess a few more safety recalls doesn't matter to GM.

To be fair, it's not like GM makes supplier decisions on the fly. These are long term contracts with years of manufacturing planning. You can't just swap 'em out that easy.

But, yeah, I should hope they switched to a different supplier for the new 2016s.
