Car manufacturers in the United States had already had to recall cars because of dangerous airbags. Now it seems clear: the problem affects significantly more cars than previously known. Therefore, BMW, Ford, Mazda, Honda and Chrysler should now expand the recall campaign.

BMW and four other large car manufacturers may have to expand their recall due to airbag problems in the United States. The Airbag manufacturer Takata as well as BMW, Ford, Mazda, Honda and Chrysler were asked to recall their cars nationwide, the US Authority for Vehicle Safety (NHTSA) shared on Tuesday.

Airbags can burst without an impact

So far, the companies had limited the recall to certain US regions. It was about 4.1 million vehicles. However, since there has recently been an Airbag incident in a area that had not previously been covered by the recall, the manufacturers would now have to proceed nationwide. The NHTSA left open how many cars therefore have to go to the workshops.In the vehicles, airbags can burst without an impact and violate the flying metal parts inmates. So far, five people have been killed.

These are the biggest return campaigns of the car companies
