In 2019, 139 different recall programs were agreed in Russia, which covered 649 594 vehicles. In total, since 2015, 3.5 million cars have been sent for repair in the country, according to the Rosstandart website.
The agency noted that various design or technological violations can be found in representatives of all segments – both budget and premium. Last year, the most popular car reviews in Russia were related to defective gas generators in the airbags of the Japanese company Takata.
For example, Nissan for this reason sent more than 160 thousand cars for repair, Toyota – about 85 thousand, and Subaru – more than 40 thousand. In total, in Russia, according to Rosstandart, there are about 1.5 million cars with Takata pillows that may not work correctly.
