Automakers recall 12 million US vehicles over Takata airbags
Eight automakers said on Friday they are recalling more than 12 million vehicles in new recalls related to defective Takata airbags, CNBC reports.
Honda Motor is recalling 4.5 million vehicles while Fiat Chrysler Automobiles is calling back 4.3 million.
The recall, which was released in documents by the U.S. government regulators, came after Japan’s Takata agreed earlier this month to declare up to 40 million additional inflators defective by 2019. The move will prompt 17 automakers to issue vehicle recalls.
Additional recall notices are expected in the coming days linked to the first phase of the new Takata recalls.
