Default NHTSA, In Unusual Move, Allows GM To Delay 2.5M Truck Takata Recall For Tests

In a highly unusual move, General Motors was granted a delay in a planned recall of 2.5 million older pickups and SUVs. The recall was part of the ongoing Takata airbag inflator safety recall.

In a highly unusual move, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has given General Motors the go-ahead to delay a massive recall of potentially defective airbag inflators, giving the automaker time to show that the devices are safe.

Outside Firm Handling Tests

GM has hired an outside company to do long-term testing of Takata airbag inflators installed in older trucks and SUVs. The vehicles include the automakerís top-selling vehicle, the Chevy Silverado pickup.
