no quick fixes for drivers affected by air bag recall

Most car recalls usually involve one automaker at a time, but this week\'s massive recall affects not only one, but 10, from BMW to Toyota.
The center of it is Takada, a bit-
Auto parts manufacturers are well known but extremely important.
More than one product produced by the company
The third airbag in all cars.
Nearly 8 million cars have been recalled to repair defective airbags, and Congress is now investigating these issues.
Carl Brewer, an analyst at Kelly\'s Blue Book, said another big problem that sets the recall apart is, \"If these airbags fail, there\'s basically nothing you can do to mitigate their potential damage or danger. \"-
You don\'t have any big habits to change or solve quickly.
Another thing that makes this situation different, Brewer says, is what happens when the airbag fails.
They should buffer you in the accident, but the defective ones will let the metal shrapnel fly.
\"So, if you are in an inevitable or unpredictable accident, the airbag will catch fire in the blink of an eye, and he says:\" It throws shrapnel at you at a very high speed, nothing you can do about it. \".
\"You drive a minute, the next minute, an accident --bang, boom! —
An air bag exploded and threw shrapnel.
\"Takata, a Japanese car supplier, serves the global automotive industry and is responsible for more than 30% of air bags.
It is one of only three large airbag suppliers.
\"If one of the three suddenly needs to recall and replace a bunch of people --
For example, they have produced tens of millions of airbags.
Also, keep up with the new car airbags they have produced there. . .
\"This is not a solution,\" Brewer said.
\"They don\'t have a vent valve that can easily replace the old airbag while continuing to make new airbags for the new car.
\"Four people have died in connection with this defect.
The problem seems to be caused by a humid environment.
The Ministry of Transport has taken unusual steps to urge owners of millions of vehicles living in high humidity areas
Florida, other Gulf States and Hawaii, for example
Take immediate action
Warnings warn drivers not to use their vehicles until they get the services of their dealers.
Allen Bloom, senior director of federal policy at the Consumer Union, said she was concerned that drivers were too indifferent to the recall.
For example, only about half of the large GM recalls affecting tens of millions of cars were repaired.
\"The idea is, to say the least, that the airbag will explode and send the metal sheet into your body, which is very troublesome,\" Bloom said . \".
\"Again, while no one should panic, we think this is a serious security issue that people should address.
\"Bloom said the government and automakers need to do better in informing the public and addressing the recall issue --
Consumers are also urged to check the recall of safercar. gov.
David Whiston, a stock analyst at Morningstar, said the car company\'s share price or sales were unlikely to be affected because most of the cars covered by the recall were old.
Whiston said that the background of the recall was the movement of standardized parts around the world.
This is helpful for automakers, \"but, when something goes wrong, it will now have problems with more vehicles than people have heard in the recall news in the past, he said.
The main pressure in the automotive industry today is to achieve economies of scale, he said.
\"This is a highly competitive industry;
There are not many weak players now.
So that\'s why, I think. . .
\"It\'s worth the risk that automakers will take a bigger recall in exchange for a bigger economy of scale,\" he said . \".
Weston is demanding.
Continue to recall a large number of cars
But you really need to pay attention to this.
