Mazda Motor Corp., Mitsubishi Motors and Subaru maker, Fuji Heavy Industries, have recalled about 715,000 more cars equipped with airbag inflators made by parts supplier Takata Corporation. The recall follows a similar recall by Toyota and Honda to replace Takata’s inflators. Regulators have linked six deaths worldwide to defective Takata airbags which exploded too violently and shot shrapnel into vehicles.
To date, more than 50 million vehicles worldwide have been recalled by about a dozen automobile manufacturers due to faulty airbag inflators manufactured by Takata. The reason for the expanded recall is still unknown as no new injury or accident has been reported.
Mazda said it was recalling about 112,000 vehicles in Japan, including the Atenza sedan, Bongo van and two models it builds for Nissan and Mitsubishi. Fuji Heavy is recalling 91,000 Imprezas in Japan and Mitsubishi is calling back about 100,000 cars in Japan and 412,000 overseas.
