Automaker broadens Takata airbag recall
Japanese auto manufacturer Honda Motors Co. announced on May 28 an additional recall of 690,000 vehicles that may have faulty airbag inflators made by Takata, according to a Reuters report.
According to reports, in the expanded Honda recall, an estimated 350,000 vehicles in the U.S. and 340,000 vehicles in Japan are affected. Honda decided to expand their recall after Takata Corp. was forced to cooperate with federal auto safety authorities and included 34 million vehicles in their recall. Millions of vehicle around the world have been recalled by several automakers due to potentially hazardous airbags that may release metal-like shrapnel from damaged inflators during airbag deployment. The problem has been linked to fatal accidents and serious injuries.
