  1. U.S. Demands Nationwide Air Bag Recall 

    The Feds are losing their patience. U.S. safety regulators want to recall millions of vehicles equipped with driver’s-side air bags manufactured by Japanese supplier Takata Corp.

Takata has been reluctant to take a regional recall national, but the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s chief, burnt by the debacle over GM ignition switches, says “we will make them do so.”
