Nissan agrees to $98 mln settlement on Takata economic loss claims

WASHINGTON, Aug 8 (Reuters) - Nissan Motor Co on Tuesday agreed to a $97.68 million settlement to resolve class-action consumer economic loss claims in the United States tied to the recall of 4.4 million vehicles with Takata air bag inflators, court records show.

The settlement is similar to others reached with major automakers. In June, a federal judge in Miami granted preliminary approval to settlements with Toyota Motor Corp , Subaru Corp, BMW AG and Mazda Motor Corp totaling $553 million and affecting 15.8 million vehicles with Takata inflators.
