BMW Recalls 220,000 Vehicles Over Faulty Airbags

In continuing coverage, Bloomberg News reports that “Bayerische Motoren Werke AG (BMW) is recalling 220,000 vehicles globally for a front-passenger air- bag defect that caused Japanese carmakers to recall 3 million vehicles last month.” Bloomberg News notes that “BMW’s recall is caused by faulty air-bag inflators from Japanese supplier Takata Corp. (7312), the same problem that led to mass recalls at Toyota Motor Corp., Honda Motor Co. and Nissan Motor Co. in April.”

Bloomberg News also relates that “a recall of more than 10 million Toyota cars and trucks in 2009 and 2010 over floor mats jamming accelerator pedals marred the image of Asia’s biggest automaker and shed light on the risks of using the same part on a whole range of vehicles to cut costs.”

Also reporting on the recall are the Detroit Free Press, the Christian Science Monitor, the Wall Street Journal, and Reuters.

About This Blog

The title of this blog reflects my attitude toward those government agencies and insurance companies that routinely mistreat injured or disabled people. As a Dallas, Texas lawyer, I've spent more than 45 years trying to help those poor folk, and I have been frustrated daily by the actions of the people on the other side of their claims. (Sorry if I offended you...)
