The Takata air bag issue has nothing to do with the inability to deploy in an accident. The Takata air bag issue is all about the propellant used and the casing of the propellant. The issue is in high humdity, high temperature environments the energy of the propellant and the corrosion of the casing causes the casing to fragment. The fragments become shrapnel which is what caused the deaths of those reported.

I'll reserve my comments about the probable drunk driving theory from a former first responder point of view.
