Nearly 3 million vehicles are part of an expanded recall over airbags. This time Honda, Nissan and Mazda models are affected.
According to Autonews.com Honda vehicles involved were manufactured between April 2000 and October 2002, including the Civic, CR-V, Odyssey and Element.
Mazda models covered are the RX-8 and first-generation Mazda6.
Nissan’s recall affects the Infiniti FX35, Pathfinder and Cube.
Today’s addition means a total of nearly 10 million vehicles worldwide are part of this recall to fix Takata airbags.
Two deaths have been linked to faulty airbags in Hondas, both of which occurred in the United States in 2009, and the company said it knows of 41 cases of ruptured airbags.
Spokespeople for Nissan and Mazda said they have received no reports of injuries.
The three companies said they will replace the defective parts.
“We apologize for the trouble caused to our clients,” said Kikko Takai, a Takata spokeswoman. “We take it seriously and will strengthen our quality control to prevent a repeat of the issue.”
