RADNOR, Pa., Nov. 19, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- The law firm of Kessler Topaz Meltzer & Check, LLP ("KTMC") has filed a class action lawsuit against Takata Corporation, its subsidiaries TK Holdings, Inc. and Highland Industries, Inc. (collectively "Takata"), and Honda Motor Company, Ltd. and American Honda Motor Company, Inc. (collectively "Honda") relating to the recent massive recall of vehicles containing allegedly defective airbags manufactured by Takata.
The complaint alleges that Takata and Honda concealed their knowledge of the nature and extent of defects in Takata-manufactured airbags from the public in disregard for public safety. The airbags have caused numerous injuries and fatalities. According to the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration ("NHTSA"), approximately 7.8 million vehicles are potentially affected by Takata-manufactured airbags. NHTSA has also urged owners of the affected vehicles to act immediately on recall notices to replace defective Takata airbags. In addition to Honda, the Takata-manufactured airbags have been reportedly installed in vehicles manufactured by Toyota, Mazda, BMW, Nissan, Mitsubishi, Subaru, Chrysler, Ford and General Motors. A list of the recalled vehicles may be found here: http://www.ktmc.com/takata-airbag-recall.
The complaint further alleges that Plaintiffs and the Class have suffered diminished market value of their vehicles as a direct result of Takata and Honda's withholding and/or misleading Plaintiffs and the Class about the safety and reliability of their vehicles.
