Ford Agrees to $299 Million Takata Settlement

Ford has agreed to a $299.1 million settlement over faulty Takata airbags. The settlement is intended to cover the economic loss suffered by car owners, such as overpaying for cars with defective airbags, and drivers being unable to drive their vehicles due to the danger of the airbags.

The settlement covers at least 6 million vehicles. Ford says it will also provide rental or loaner vehicles to owners who are awaiting repairs when parts are unavailable.

Ford is the seventh automaker to settle over Takata airbags. The faulty airbags are linked to 290 injuries and at least 23 deaths worldwide. The Takata recall is the largest auto safety recall in history.
