I wonder if this has anything to do with withdrawing opposition to california fuel economy laws.

I guess my snowplow truck is in this. Don't think the bags will deploy if I hit something with the plow anyway, so it's safe til springtime

A better article has more details here: https://www.nbcnews.com/busines​s/autos​/gm-pay-1-2b-one-third-its-annual-inco​me-recall-n1248619

In short, GM found that 67,000 airbag deployments in the field had no problems. Further, they had Northrup-Grumman test 4,270 airbag initiators by exposing them to accelerated humidity and temperature cycling, with zero problems.

It's literally a 100% success from testing in the field (owners as beta testers) and in the lab, but NHTSA still wants them recalled.

Fondle-y, if the trucks in question have truck nuts.

Holy shiat guys, Takata airbags have killed 27 people!  And that's enough for us to recall even non-faulty airbags.

Wait until the federal government hears how many people have died from gunshots and coronavirus!
