Sen. Bill Nelson Says Cars Have Defective Takata Airbags, Two Years Later

There's a good chance one of the cars driving by you this afternoon still has a defective Takata airbag.

Senator Bill Nelson released statistics Thursday morning showing two-thirds of the roughly 2.3 million vehicles in the state with the recalled airbags haven't been repaired

It's been two years since the first nationwide recall on the safety devices. 

So far, 16 deaths and more than 180 injuries have been linked to the defects.

Nelson called on automakers nearly 12 months ago to replace the inflators before the cars are sold so they don't eventually have to be recalled.
