Daimler Recalls Over 800,000 Vehicles

It seems that Daimler Volkswagen has had a lot of explaining to do over the past few years. Now, a new recall adds yet another scandal to the list.
As of mid-February, Daimler recalled 840,000 cars and vans in order to replace Takata airbags that are said to be defective.


Overall, the recall affects a total of 705,000 Mercedes-Benz vehicles and 136,000 Daimler vans in the United States.
According to a spokesman from the automaker, the recall applies to models built between 2006 and 2014. Volkswagen also said that it was recalling 680,000 cars in its namesake brand because the airbags in the cars could also be defective.
While Daimler claims that its recall was “precautionary,” it will cost the company over $380 million to do so. Additionally, the company said its net profit will be cut to $9.8 billion due to the massive loss.
However, the Takata recall is affecting more than Daimler. In fact, some of the world’s most reputable automakers are taking a hit, such as Honda, Ford, Nissan, and Toyota.
And for Takata, a Japanese auto parts maker, there has been a long-standing struggle to recover, after the company’s inflators were found to be defective. According to, the airbags explode when they are activated, effectively shooting out shards of metal that allegedly cause death and injury while driving.
In the U.S. alone, there are more than 2,600 deaths a year due to car neglect. But even when cars are properly maintained, dangerous recalls put drivers at even further risks of injury and death while on the road. So far, at least 10 deaths tied to the defect have been recorded worldwide, with nine of them occurring in the U.S.
Meanwhile, Daimler is facing serious charges over diesel emissions that are alleged violations of U.S. emissions laws.
