They just continue to throw hay-makers at Iowa's car and truck owners. New cars continue to be made using the dangerously defective Takata air bag. You might want to ask how this can be. You might. And you should.

You should ask yourself if as the owner should be paying to fix defects manufacturers claim to be paying to fix.
