Taking care of recalls in Minnesota

According to the NHTSA, a record of over 51 million vehicles were recalled in 2015. Stronger enforcement is believed to be behind the growing number of recalls, and a recall of air bag inflators made by Takata Corp. accounted for a large number of recalls that year. A total of 23 million of its inflators had been recalled, and eight people were killed because of issues with its product.

More recalls over faulty airbags

Mazda drivers in Minnesota may soon be receiving recall notices in the mail. The Japanese auto maker is one of 12 car manufacturers to recall vehicles equipped with airbags provided by the parts supplier Takata. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration ordered the recall of all vehicles so equipped after a series of accidents claimed nine lives and left more than 100 people injured. The announcement marked the latest round in a series of recalls that has involved approximately 19 million vehicles.

Carbon monoxide deaths caused by keyless ignition cars

There have been a number of fatal accidents caused by cars with keyless ignitions in the past several years. In 2012, an 84-year-old man in excellent health died due to carbon monoxide poisoning while sitting in his recliner and watching television. After returning from the store, he accidentally left his keyless ignition car running in the garage, and the poisonous gas filled his home. Minnesota motorists may want to know that there have been at least 18 such carbon monoxide poisoning deaths attributable to keyless vehicles since 2009.
