Another major carmaker has made a huge recall due to a defective part that could cause serious injuries to drivers. After the recall made by Toyota, Honda decided to do the same. Honda has to recall almost 400,000 cars due to faulty airbags, made by Takata Corp in the US. Only models made from 2001 to 2002 are affected, but if their airbags are likely to explode, then people who bought these cars should have to shoulder the cost if you pay for a car (they're expensive!) you shouldn't even have to think about payday loans or shouldering any cost at all if they muff it. Detroit has to love the Toyota recall and the Honda recall although it isn't as if GM, Ford, or Chrysler hasn't made defective products either. (The Ford Pinto, Firestone Tires, and so forth.)
I think a truly "dog friendly" car would not have cloth seats. Better break out the pet hair roller.
