Sometimes the guilt comes in handy in the industry. Honda is one of several manufacturers who trusted supplier Takata airbags one of the largest in the world. A roll of those airbags have a potential failure threatening the lives of its customers particularly in the inflator. Honda CEO Takanobu Ito has sung the mea culpa and ensures that before reaching the target of six million annual sales for fiscal year 2016 will worry more on improving quality. While most manufacturers concerned sell more than anything else this movement is commendable.
As he was presenting the Honda Hybrid Legend in Japan the manager said: "I heart lurches that our customers have been injured or killed in our products with airbags". Very Japanese. Honda is still investigating how many models may be affected by the failure potential in order to make effective corrective action. We are talking about cars that were sold a few years ago. The "Takagate" is one of the most notorious scandals of the year industrial past and present as well.
Some suppliers have been headaches for several manufacturers just remember what happened to Toyota in North America and also splashed brands such as Dodge or Pontiac. The downside to standardize components in mass is that when there is a failure and takes years to detect then ill get several manufacturers.
Yesterday we told you that Takata could have known this problem for 10 years. Meanwhile since last year's recalls are eight million cars from 10 different manufacturers. Manufacturers will invoice to Takata seriously ballasted vendor accounts. Talk about a huge sum of money. for the other reviews about the newest cars visit here.
