Recalls for defective Takata airbags began with 4,000 2001 Honda Accord and Civic models in November 2008, Automotive News reported. The first Takata airbag-related U.S. death occurred in May 2009. That’s when an airbag in a 2001 Honda Accord exploded, sending metal fragments into a teenager’s neck. In fact, Takata airbags have been blamed for 17 other deaths and 250 injuries in the U.S. alone.
