On Jan. 9, the driver of a Honda Accord was killed in a crash in South Carolina after being hit by fragments of a ruptured Takata airbag inflator.It was the 19th fatal accident involving defective Takata airbag inflators in the United States and the 28th worldwide since 2009.

Known as the "death airbag" in the industry because of its frequent deaths, takata is now bankrupt, and automakers around the world have repeatedly recalled related models, but its "death airbag" is still a threat to many owners.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has opened a new investigation into about 30 million vehicles made between 2001 and 2019 by more than two dozen automakers, according to a government document,The cars were fitted with potentially defective airbags made by Japan's Takata Corp.

NHTSA on Friday began an engineering analysis of the vehicles. Carmakers have been alerted to the investigation, which has not been made public and is not expected to be formally announced until Monday.

The investigation involved Honda, Ford, Toyota, General Motors, Nissan, Subaru, Tesla, Ferrari, Mazda, Daimler, BMW, Chrysler (now part of Stellantis), Porsche, Jaguar Land Rover, and others.

NHTSA said in the filing that the 30 million vehicles include those that were built with airbag inflators and some that were replaced as part of a previous recall repair.

Air bag, takata gas generator containing ammonium nitrate agent (with and without desiccant). The gas generating agent is not perfect in moisture-proof, under the influence of temperature and humidity changes repeatedly, the gas generating agent may deteriorate.

In the process of air bag opening, excessive pressure may be generated inside the gas generator, and abnormal damage of the gas generator may occur, resulting in debris flying out and injuring the occupants of the vehicle.
