Takata: Nissan sends mechanics to Torres Strait Islands for recall

The massive Takata recall has already forced manufacturers to take extraordinary measures, including targeted online advertising, multiple letters and door-knocking campaigns. The industry has even come together to create a website for concerned owners. According to the Federal Chamber of Automotive Industries (FCAI), there are more than 19,500 vehicles with unchanged alpha inflators kicking about, while around 1.6 million are still fitted with some form of faulty airbag.
