Millions of Takata Air-Bag Fixes Sets Stage for Grilling

Updated on

The world’s biggest automakers have fixed a fraction of almost 8 million cars recalled for Takata Corp. air bags, providing fuel for a U.S. Senate committee grilling the industry today for its handling of the crisis.

About 6 percent of affected vehicles recalled by 10 carmakers have been repaired, according to Bloomberg News calculations based on figures provided to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Honda Motor Co. and Toyota Motor Corp., which have called back the most cars, each disclosed lower remedy rates in letters on NHTSA’s website yesterday.
