Another 6.5 million Toyotas, Nissans recalled for Takata air bag problems.

The AP (5/13, Kageyama) reports Toyota Motor Corp. and Nissan Motor Co. are “expanding their recalls over problem air bags” made by Takata Corp. by another 6.5 million vehicles. The AP says on Wednesday Toyota indicated that it was recalling almost five million more vehicles globally for the air bag problem and 637,000 of the vehicles are in the US and almost 1.4 million in Japan. The article says Takata has been “fined $14,000 per day by NHTSA since Feb. 20 for allegedly dumping documents on the agency without the legally required explanation of what’s in them.” The AP says the NHTSA fines have reached almost $1 million but “Takata has denied it is not cooperating fully with the investigation.”
