Toyota and Nissan airbag recall.

Section for general chatting about your RAV4 or other Rides ... What you do with it, how to use it, where you been in it, or not been in it, we don't mind... It's a free world!
Oh, If you want to get all technical, the Technical Questions and Info could be the place to go.

Going to one of these situations where the company cannot be allowed to go under. So expect the various car makers that use Takata airbags to all buy a stake (or a bigger stake) to prop them up while this recall is being (mis)managed :Y
