Japanese car makers recall 3.4m vehicles for Takata airbag flaw

Four Japanese automakers, including Toyota and Nissan, are recalling 3.4m vehicles sold worldwide because airbags supplied by Takata are at risk of catching fire or injuring passengers.

The move announced in mid-April is the largest recall ever for airbags made by Takata, the world’s second-largest supplier of airbags and seatbelts. The company is understood to have first learned of the issue 18 month ago.
