Subaru note: airbags are deadly

A malfunction in the device’s accelerator causes an explosion when the device is started. This leads to several pieces of metal being thrown at the residents, which has caused about 20 deaths worldwide, and around 200 people have been injured.

Leo AlvesJournalist graduated from the Methodist University of São Paulo and participant of the free course in Automotive Journalism at the Faculdade Cásper Líbero, I have been in love with cars since I know myself. I have written about technology, tourism and football, but my heart is driven by engines and four wheels (although I love aviation too). I’ve been in the same room with Lewis Hamilton, talked to Rubens Barrichello and interviewed Christian Fittipaldi.
