Defective airbags are still in use; all must be recalled by 2018

(NEWS10) – A new senate report says at least four automakers are still selling new vehicles with defective TAKATA airbags, despite a pending recall.

The senate commerce committee says Toyota, Volkswagen, Fiat Chrysler and Mitsubishi are allowed to equip models already under production with the defective airbags, but regulators say they must be recalled by 2018.

At least 13 deaths and more than 100 injuries have been linked to the defective airbags.

It is the largest and most complicated recall in car history.
