Mazda Recalls 330k More Takata Inflators to 'Satisfy Customers'

Back in October, Mazda issued their first Takata recall. Six days ago they expanded that recall by 40,000 vehicles. And now Mazda is recalling an additional 330,000 vehicles with Takata inflators.

Spot a trend?

Mazda isn’t saying a safety defect exists in the cars, but the automaker will use the “recall” to satisfy customers and gather the metal airbag inflators for examination.

I’m not sure satisfy is the word I would use here, especially when Takata inflators have killed people. At least Mazda has agreed to work with other automakers to try and find the root cause of this spreading airbag epidemic.
