New scandal erupts around Takata

New scandal erupts around Takata

October 16, 2020 0 By autotimesnews

According to published data, the former division of the passive safety systems manufacturer Takata sent 9 million substandard seat belts to Japanese automakers, which could lead to the recall of more than 2 million vehicles.

This is evidenced by a study by the American company Joyson Safety Systems, which tested the 2018 seat belt. Takata reportedly manipulated the results of her own strength tests. In addition, devices for transporting children were found among the defective belts.

Recall that the Japanese manufacturer of passive safety systems regularly produced low-quality products for cars. In the 90s, a scandal broke out over the seat belts, and in the early 2000s, several dozen people died from exploding airbags. In 2017, Takata announced that it had rigged research results.
