Toyota is recalling another 543,000 vehicles in the United States due to defective airbags made by the Takata Corp., the company said Friday.
Honda announced Tuesday it’s recalling 772,000 additional Honda and Acura vehicles in the U.S. due to defective airbags.
Takata pled guilty to criminal charges Friday for failing to disclose problems with its airbag inflators. The inflators, which relied on ammonium nitrate as their primary propellant, had some failures, including ruptures, during testing. However, Takata submitted false information to auto manufacturers to cover up the defects, according to court documents.
