Takata airbag safety recall expanding

Over on the Honda-Tech forums I learned yesterday that the Takata exploding airbag problem is worse than thought. It seems that on January 24th or thereabouts the US's National Highway & Transportation Safety Administration and dealers are going to announce the specifics of an expanded recall that includes a number of manufacturers from 1995 through 1999. Details at NHTSA:

I searched for Takata recall info on the ecomodder website I didn't find anything on this news, so I thought I'd share.

See my car's mod & maintenance thread and my electric bicycle's thread for ongoing projects. I will rebuild Black and Green over decades as parts die, until it becomes a different car of roughly the same shape and color. My minimum fuel economy goal is 55 mpg while averaging posted speed limits. I generally top 60 mpg. See also my Honda manual transmission specs thread.
