Wharton management professor John Paul MacDuffie pointed to a fundamental problem in Takata’s use of ammonium nitrate in cartridges within its airbags. The cartridges lacked a material to absorb moisture, which led to them inflating prematurely and exploding, especially in higher levels of heat and humidity.

Many of Takata’s competitors decided not to use ammonium nitrate because of the risks it involved. However, Takata was confident about its engineering and manufacturing expertise and in being able to tackle any quality problems that arose and make improvements, said MacDuffie. Therein lies the genesis of Takata’s problems, including possibly leading it to manipulating test data, he suggested.

Takata, brought down by airbag crisis, files for bankruptcy

With spiraling debts estimated at more than $9 billion, Takata (TKTDY) said Monday it's seeking bankruptcy protection in Japan and the U.S. It's also selling off the lion's share of its business to a U.S.-based rival.

So they're out of business, but the problem is that they have been making airbags for millions and millions of vehicles since the 1980s, ranging from BMW, Chrysler, Ford, Honda, Mazda, Nissan, and Toyota. So recalling all of them to fix this problem is an extensive headache for parent manufacturer companies and Governments (except Trinidad because we seem to have no safety recall laws in existence). Plus Takata Corporation has had a very bad reputation with seat-belts as well with a recall of over 8 million vehicles to fix a defect with ABS plastic exposure to sunlight. The two largest recalls in history was due to this company for their seatbelts and their airbags.
