Things to Know: Takata Air Bag Recall; FAQs

The Takata tally: 42 million vehicles to be recalled, up to 69 million air bag inflators to be replaced.

That's what the government said Friday will be the end result of the series of recalls of defective air bag inflators made by the Japanese auto parts supplier.

The inflators can explode with too much force and spew shrapnel into the vehicle. They are responsible so far for at least 11 deaths and about 180 injuries in the U.S., and at least 5 deaths in Malaysia.

Here's what car owners need to know about the recall.

I thought as I got older, I would learn wisdom and patience, but the only thing I have learned so far is that I don't give a damn.

Takata will be unable to replace airbags on vehicles on recall. Bankruptcy is the end game for them.
