Released Takata emails suggest systemic manipulation practices

Posted on Sunday, January 10th, 2016 at 2:34 pm    

The New York Times recently spent some time looking over the recently released Takata emails regarding the defective airbags which have caused eight deaths in America and been the cause of a massive auto recall across the country. In these emails, one airbag engineer for Takata, Bob Schubert, wrote that he had been “repeatedly exposed to the Japanese practice of altering data presented to the customer,” and noted that this type of behavior was “the way we do business in Japan.”

Schubert’s memo was one of the many documents released in relation to a personal injury lawsuit against Takata that suggests the company has an issue with systemic manipulation. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has fined Takata for not cooperating in its investigation of the automotive company’s defective airbag inflaters, which, according to the Times, was a response to the company manipulating data.
