Key Safety Systems has completed the $1.6 billion acquisition of bankrupt Takata, marking the end of the 85-year-old Japanese automotive supplier at the centre of a global recall of exploding airbags.
Ford Motor Co had in the petition requested to delay recalling about 3 million vehicles with potentially defective air bag inflators to conduct additional testing. It did not immediately say if it planned to challenge the NHTSA's decision.

US Transportation Department confirms automakers recall another 35 million to 40 million air bag inflators.
