Takata agrees to pay $70 million fine for air bag bungle

“For years Takata has built and sold defective inflators, refused to acknowledge the defect, and supplied inaccurate and misleading information, putting millions of Americans at risk,” Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx told a news conference. “American drivers should not have to worry that a device designed to save their life might actually take it.”


Takata would be paying additional $130 million if it fails to adhere to the terms of the consent agreement reached with the government or if additional violations of the Safety Act are found making the fine up to $200 million!
