Millions of Japanese cars are getting recalled because of air bags made by the Takata Corporation.
But while you might not know that name, you are probably more familiar with the car makers that install their products: Toyota, Honda, and Nissan. Those Japanese automakers are recalling many of their post-2000 vehicles because of those faulty air bags.
For a company like Toyota, it's another hit to its reputation following another large recall a few years ago because of faulty brakes and gas pedals.
However Michelle Krebs, senior analyst for Edmunds, explains why it might not be as damaging in the long run.
