  • Japan: Toyota and Nissan recall 6.5 million cars over airbags

    Japanese car giants Toyota and Nissan are recalling a total of 6.5 million cars globally to replace potentially faulty airbag inflators made by Takata.

    Toyota said it was recalling just under five million cars, including the Corolla, Vitz and other models made between March 2003 and November 2007.

    Nissan is recalling about 1.56 million cars over the same issue.

    Takata doubles faulty airbag recall to 34 million

    Japanese airbag maker Takata has said that mechanisms in the airbags of almost 34 million cars are defective. It will lead to the largest recall in US automotive history, affecting models from 11 carmakers.

    The number is double previous estimates for faulty air bags from the manufacturer.

    US regulators said Takata has still not found the cause of the defects.

    The airbags have been linked to six deaths and more than 100 injuries.

    "Today is a major step forward for public safety," US Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx said.
