Honda has recalled an additional 4.89 million cars equipped with possibly faulty airbags manufactured by Japan-based Takata.
The recall covers 14 models produced between 2002 and 2008, a Honda spokesperson said. More than 3 million of the cars are located outside of Japan.
Honda’s (HMC) recall comes one day after its Japanese counterparts Toyota (TM) and Nissan(NSANF) recalled 6.56 million cars of their own.
Tens of millions of cars equipped with Takata airbags have been recalled by automakers recently over fears the airbags may explode and send shrapnel flying at drivers and passengers. Honda has now issued more than 10 separate recalls over the issue.
