Defective Airbag Class Action Litigation

 

In April 2019, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) expanded an investigation into airbag manufacturer ZF-TRW to include several popular auto manufacturers, including Honda, Hyundai, Mitsubishi, Kia, and Toyota. This investigation indicates that “[c]ertain FCA, Honda, Hyundai, Kia, Mitsubishi, and Toyota vehicles are equipped with an air bag control unit produced by TRW (ZF), which could fail during a crash event resulting in non-deployment of air bags and seat belt pretensioners.”1
