USA Today (7/9, 5.01M) reports that Honda is recalling an additional 4.5 million Takata air bags outside the US, including in Japan. The article notes that Honda is among 11 automakers that had to recall vehicles in the US after they used Takata air bags. Takata is recalling more than 33 million defective air inflators in the US after it reached a deal with the NHTSA.
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution (7/9, Krisher, Kageyama, 985K) also covers the additional recall, adding that Takata, the auto industry and NHTSA “are all investigating to find out exactly what causes the problem.”
