I still put a lot of blame on the Auto manufacturers. If they did not demand dirt cost on items, and actually cared this could have been avoided. Many companies bidded, and many when questioned about pricing stated it was impossible under the cost to use the right chemicals, and anyone with a low cost was using inferior chems. What did they do... buy from cheapest without care.
Only when people started to die did the manufacturers care or question. They were told this from the very beginning, bean counters.
I don't believe Takata is being allowed to suppy the new bags, I thought I had read one of the above mentioned manufacturers are doing the replacements. No doubt Ford is "staggering" supply, but in life and death that is BS.
