When Will the Takata Recalls Stop? Not Anytime Soon, Apparently.

Takata is like a nightmare we just can’t wake up from. Did you know it’s been almost five years since the first recall? Anyone else ever think we’d be staring down the barrel of yet another recall expansion which I might shorten to YARE form now on.

Three fatalities. Five injuries. One massive recall for Fiat-Chrysler (FCA) vehicles.
