I just think that no money can pay for the lives lost.. but I think 1B is enough

I agree. This is a surprising thing for Japanese executives to make. This is horrible that they have put money over safety first.

There's no amount of money that will make this okay. This could have been prevented but corporation would rather pay a settlement rather than fix the problem.

Government hit Volkswagen much harder for the emissions. Sad how they care more about what comes out of a tailpipe than actual human lives.

This is AWESOME! So when can the American People that purchased vehicles with Takata airbags be expecting their check from OUR government for an equal portion of the $1B fine?

To compensate auto makers?!?!? Automakers get paid in full for vehicles. That money should go straight to the people that bought the cars with the problems. And why are the people getting 125 million (of which they probably won't see a dime) and the"automakers," are getting 810 million. Makes. No. Sense.

Meanwhile my Takata-afflicted car has little trade value because most dealers have no interest in taking unfixed Takata airbag cars in on trade because their lawyers have advised them not to resell said cars until the repairs are carried out. There are no PARTS available. There is no TIMEFRAME for when parts will be available. All the while my car could potentially KILL me thanks to the Takata assholes who did cover this up, but Takata is neither being fined as much as VW, nor is anyone offering to pay me an enormous buyback amount for my car like the TDI folks will walk away with. Takata has basically murdered people by covering up their known faults.

In concept and theory airbags are great... if they work. There was one time that I can recount when they damn well should have...they never went off.

I still don't understand the whole huge fine aspect of this... Ultimately it's just a way for the USA to cash in off of free money , the cost of the vehicles will be modified to offset it, and ultimately nothing positive happens. Same as in a speeding ticket, the government wins, people still lose.

All of you claiming NOX emissions aren't bad, I want numbers on people who died or suffered respiratory illness from these fucking things, keeping in mind diesel is FAR worse in cars than heavy plant equipment

All I want is my Audi airbags replaced. Is that too much to ask? 10 months since recall notice. Still waiting ????

So, will those defective airbags actually be replaced, by good ones?

I'll settle for GM replacing my airbag so it doesn't murder me... Ever? No? SUPER!

Product that has actually been proven to cause deaths gets less of a fine? Really?

Japan's Takata Corp on Friday agreed to plead guilty to criminal wrongdoing and to pay US$1 billion to resolve a US Justice Department

Definitely not. They should have done a better job so the deaths would not have even happened.
