Honda Has Lowered Sales Goals in Wake of Takata Airbag Recall

As we’ve been discussing on our blog lately, the Takata airbag saga has been dragging on for years, resulting in around 25 million vehicles being recalled worldwide since 2008 due to defective inflators that cause the devices to spray shrapnel at occupants during a wreck.

In the wake of the recall, Honda, one of several automakers involved and Takata’s biggest customer, has had to lower its 2017 sales goals because of safety concerns related to the vehicle’s airbags. According to Reuters, Honda originally had hoped to be selling six million cars a year by 2017, but due to concerns over the quality of its vehicles, the company felt pressure to back off its sales goal.
