Minnesota gets $1.5 million in multistate settlement with Honda over air bags
August 27, 2020
Minnesota will receive $1.5 million out of an $85 million multistate settlement with American Honda Motor Co. over allegations it concealed safety concerns with air bag systems installed in certain Honda and Acura vehicles.
The air bag inflaters were made by Takata Corp. and could rupture and cause metal fragments to fly into the passenger compartments.
The faulty parts were installed in cars starting in 2001 and led to one of the largest auto recalls in U.S. history, more than 40 million vehicles.
