From our very own Stef Schrader.

Cliff's Notes: Takata seatbelts may have problems with the webbing, this wasn't discovered until their factory was purchased as they went through bankruptcy. The new owner of the factory found the errors in QA reporting and blew the whistle. Takata also faked their airbag inflator tests to sell their products, so this would be consistent with the circumstances of the airbag recall that bankrupted the company.

Takata is no more, but with a slumping economy, automakers are going to have foot the bill for a recall and to source new parts; something that's going to hurt financially as many automakers face tighter budgets and the push to develop new, more energy efficient vehicles.
