McLaren initiates Takata airbag recall

McLaren Automotive has commenced its Takata airbag recall, affecting models sold from 2012 through 2018. As with all Takata-related notices, vehicles included in the recall could be fitted with airbags that degrade over time due to exposure to high temperatures and humidity. If the condition occurs and the vehicle is involved in an accident where the airbags are triggered, the metal inflator housing could rupture upon deployment, shooting metal fragments into the cabin.
