Major Car Makers Recall Millions Of Cars

Airbag Recalls

     Three major automakers are recalling millions of vehicles around the world due to faulty airbags. Toyota, Honda and Nissan are recalling more than 3 million cars because the airbag inflator on the passenger side could accidentally burst, and send plastic pieces flying. The Japanese company, Takata Corp. made the airbags from 2000 to 2002. It's the company's biggest recall since 1995, when several automakers called back almost NINE million vehicles for faulty seat belts. Some of the vehicles being recalled are the Toyota Corolla, Tundra and the Lexus SC, built between November 2000 and March 2004.
