Toyota adds 356000 vehicles to Takata air bag recalls – CNBC

Posted: Wednesday, March 02, 2016

An estimated 29 million Takata air bag inflators have been recalled in the United States in more than 19 million vehicles because the inflators can activate with too much force, sending potentially deadly metal shards into the passenger compartment.

Toyota said the new recalls increased the number of Toyota vehicles with Takata air bags worldwide to 15,314,000, including 3,156,000 in the United States.

Reuters has reported that U.S. auto safety regulators are examining whether an additional 70 million to 90 million Takata air bag inflators should be recalled.

Toyota did not immediately respond to queries regarding the names of the models recalled outside the United States.
