    I had to chuckle at Ms. Knight's non-response to the question of whether there were any injuries or fatalities associated with this recall. Last year, I told Toyota that I was considering the purchase of a 2015 Camry, but first I needed to know if any of that vehicle's airbags were supplied by Takata. The answer I received was "Takata is only one of several suppliers Toyota uses for airbag system components, including front passenger airbag inflator assemblies. The 2015 Camry has a number of airbags and other safety components that may be sourced from Takata. However, these components may be different in their design, built in a different location or manufacturing plant, or assembled during a different time period than the inflator assemblies currently involved in the existing recall." Apparently Toyota has a corporate policy of giving non-responses to uncomfortable questions.

    "Pretty much have to assume that all of them are bad. Something like 1/3rd of Honda air bags have been identified as bad. So far.

    "At this point, 28.8 million Takata inflators have been recalled by 14 manufacturers."
