All auto defects are potentially problematic since they deprive consumers of a function they are paying for. Worse, many auto defects are also very dangerous. However, one of the most insidious types of auto defects is faulty airbag systems.
Millions of American drivers are counting on their airbag systems to keep them safe behind the wheel in the event of an accident. However, sadly for some drivers this confidence may be misplaced. The recent high-profile Takata airbag recall brought attention to dangers that accompany faulty airbag systems. Serious harm can occur when other projectiles deploy along with the airbags, in essence acting almost like shrapnel and often causing major injuries or even death in the process. Other times the airbag may deploy with too much force and hurt passengers, or it may not deploy quickly enough to protect occupants. Still other times an airbag may not deploy at all or it may do so at an inappropriate and dangerous time.
