Airbag recall widens; Is your car on the list?
[![The Takata Corp. airbag recall has widened.](http://buyersguide.carsoup.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/05/Air-bag-recall-story.jpg)](http://buyersguide.carsoup.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/05/Air-bag-recall-story.jpg)The Takata Corp. airbag recall has widened.
Takata Corporation, one of the largest suppliers of airbags, has now doubled the number of vehicles to be recalled to nearly 34 million, making it the largest automotive recall in U.S. history, the New York Times reported this week.

The Japanese-based Takata for more than a decade denied that its products were defective. It has now admitted that its airbags were defective. The airbags can explode violently when they deploy, sending shrapnel flying into a car’s passenger compartment. Six deaths and more than 100 injuries have been linked to the flaw.
