“ General Motors will recall about seven million big pickup trucks and SUVs worldwide to replace potentially dangerous Takata air bag inflators.

The announcement came Monday after the U.S. government told the automaker it had to recall six million of the vehicles in the U.S. “

“ GM will recall full-size pickup trucks and SUVs from the 2007 through 2014 model years, including the Chevrolet Silverado 1500, 2500 and 3500 pickups. “

The Curse of Takata continues. I wonder if this will rate as the worst overall automotive recall of all time.

A cautionary tale in the overuse of global single source suppliers.

Yup, got a recall notice for the replacement airbag from the 1st recall (2001 BMW).

Eventually every airbag they ever made will be recalled. Followed by every replacement airbag. The technology is not stable in practical real world settings.

Yeah, GM was fighting this tooth & nail to avoid the $1 billion plus projected cost.

Wonder when they'll actually have enough parts to be able to replace the airbags in my Suburban...

They've been denying claims to fix deployed side air bags in Canyon pickup trucks. Apparently, the rollover sensor is too sensitive to off-roading activities, even in the ZR2 which is marketed for off-roading.
