Japanese automakers including Honda (HMC), Nissan (NSANY), and Toyota (TM) are delaying pressure for a restructuring at Takata (TKTDY) until the company ships out a healthy supply of replacement parts, reports Reuters, citing Masaki Higurashi, deputy director of the Japanese trade ministry's auto division. "After all the replacement parts are supplied, the automakers have to decide whether to let Takata stay on as it is... I think the automakers are starting to think about that," added Higurashi. Reuters notes that Takata and the carmakers disagree on whether the most recent round of airbag recalls are necessary, and as a result have not reached an agreement on costs. Reference Link
