installed over 100 million "Takata" airbags that were involved in a recall, the largest in U.S. automotive history. The settlement is also known as
the Takata MDL economic loss settlement. This settlement covers about 32 million of those
recalled airbags, in which it is alleged that economic loss was imposed on auto consumers. Settlement funds are intended to reimburse those owned or leased
certain vehicles produced by the above mentioned car manufacturers. Reimbursements will be for expenses related to out-of-pocket repairs, replacements of airbag
