Air bag issues are at the center of Mazda’s latest recall campaign.
According to the company, nearly 270,000 vehicles fitted with Takata air bags and made by Mazda have been recalled.
These vehicles are some of the millions of cars recalled in the United States because of exploding air bags. The metal inflators in these air bags may explode mid-deployment, that’s because the chemicals used to inflate the passenger and driver air bags may deteriorate over time. As a result, several parts of metal will fly into the vehicle’s cabin, exposing occupants to serious injury risks.
