The National Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has asked the US manufacturer to recall 5.9 million pick-up trucks and four-wheel drive vehicles from the United States to replace the air bag inflators.
“GM” had filed four appeals against this decision, which was originally taken in 2016.
On Monday, the group revealed that it would comply with the decision and withdraw an additional million cars from different countries for the same problem while continuing efforts to nullify the measure.
The group has 30 days to inform NHTSA management of the deadline it has set to notify the owners of the cars in question, which are models dating back to the period between 2007 and 2014 of the Cadillac, Chevrolet and GMC brands.
For its part, the National Authority stated that it conducted an in-depth analysis, which concluded that “GM blowers face the same risk of explosion as other Takata blowers, after exposure to high degrees of heat and humidity for a long time.”
About 20 people have died in traffic accidents caused by a defect in the products of the Japanese company “Takata”, which has since been declared bankrupt, which led to the withdrawal of at least 100 million vehicles of different brands around the world.
Takata used ammonium nitrate to inflate pillows at the time of the shock. However, this chemical element is degradable and may explode in a dangerous way when exposed to heat and moisture.
And in 2014, the US authorities revealed this scandal that had been hidden by “Takata” for a long time. (AFP)
