GM: Will cost $1.2 billion fix airbag defect
(NBC) – General Motors will recall 5.9 million vehicles with potentially dangerous Takata airbag inflators after a U.S. safety agency said Monday it had rejected the Detroit automaker’s petition to avoid the callback.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said GM must recall the 2007-2014 model year trucks and SUVs because the inflators “are at risk of the same type of explosion after long-term exposure to high heat and humidity as other recalled Takata inflators.”
GM has estimated in securities filings it would cost $1.2 billion if it were required to replace airbag inflators it had sought to avoid fixing.
