Nissan recently issued a recall for around 346,000 vehicles to replace defective Takata airbags. Takata airbags were first recalled in 2014, yet Nissan did not announce these vehicles contained defective airbags until January 2020. Authorized Nissan Dealerships began replacing the airbags on February 10, 2020.

Earlier this month, Takata Corp., the Japanese airbag manufacturer, announced that it would expand recalls for defective airbag inflators to 40 million.
Airbags are meant to help decrease major injuries during automobile accidents. Unfortunately since their introduction three decades ago, there has been much speculation as to their actual effect. The recent recall of Japan's Takata Corporation's airbags has caused this speculation to increase. After several incidents where airbags caused serious injuries and even death to drivers, an investigation took place regarding Takata's airbags.
