There is a potentially deadly defect in the Takata airbag inflators that were recalled between 2008 and 2015. A design or manufacturing defect causes the part to inflate the air bag with far too much force, breaking the surrounding airbag housing. This can cause metal and plastic pieces to shoot through the cabin. So far, at least 16 deaths and 180 injuries have been tied to the defect.
