Senate Report Shows Mercedes, Ferrari, & Daimler Vans are Selling New Cars with Takata Airbags.

Reuters reports the US Senate released a report on Wednesday that said Mercedes-Benz, Ferrari, and Daimler Vans have admitted to installing defective Takata airbags in new vehicles. The Hill reports Sen. Bill Nelson, ranking member on the Commerce, Science and Transportation Committee, said, “New vehicles with defective airbags cover pretty much the whole spectrum, from low-priced cars to the highest-end models,” he added, “They also underscore the failure of certain automakers and regulators to level with people about the true extent of the problem and to have the cars fixed before they’re sold.” MLive (MI) reports the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has said the automakers have until the end of 2018 to recall all affected vehicles, but in the meantime the cars can still be legally sold since “newer airbags would take time to deteriorate and automakers will presumably fix them via the recall before then.” The automakers are under no legal obligation to disclose the potentially faulty airbags to customers.

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...)
