Buyback:-Toyota, Mazda and Suzuki 1996 - 1999.


Toyota, Mazda and Suzuki have recalled more than 18 000 vehicles manufactured between 1996 and 1999 that are fitted with potentially deadly Takata NADI 5-AT airbags. These airbags could injure or kill people in the car by misdeploying in an accident and propelling metal fragments into the cabin of the vehicle at high speed. Theyve also, in some instances, not fully inflated in a crash, thereby failing to protect drivers as expected. Owners of affected cars are advised to stop driving immediately and contact their manufacturer to arrange an urgent, free inspection. Toyota, Mazda and Suzuki are offering to buy back affected vehicles.

I was reading about Takata at Wikipedia:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Takata_Corporation

Sodium azide (old highly stable airbag propellant phased out by Takata in the 1990s in favor of the less potentially toxic tetrazole)

Apparently sodium azide is extremely toxic. It's a wonder that it was ever used at all.
