Drivers affected by the giant Takata airbag recall could be waiting months for replacement parts. The Detroit News is reporting that in August, the airbag supplier told the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration that it's produced 132,000 replacement air bag inflator kits and hopes to have a total of 830,000 ready by the end of October.
But that's not nearly enough. About 7.8 million cars from 10 automakers have been recalled due to faulty inflators that can send metal and plastic shrapnel into occupants if the front passenger airbag deploys. NHTSA recently issued an urgent warning to drivers of the affected vehicles to get their car repaired as quickly as possible, but Takata told NHTSA that the there is a shortage of wire harnesses for the new inflator kits.
