Toyota adds to recall over airbagsBack

Toyota2Japanese car manufacturer Toyota has added 650,000 cars – all in Japan – to the recall it issued last year over a defect in passenger airbags.

That takes the number of cars recalled over the issue to 2.79 million.

The affected vehicles have a defective part which “could cause the airbag inflator to rupture and deploy the airbag abnormally in a crash”.

Toyota, the world’s biggest carmaker, said it had received one report of a seat cover burn due to the issue.

It added that it was also modifying the remedy that it was using to address the issue.

Toyota said that it had so far been replacing the part in the affected vehicles based on the serial number provided by the parts maker, Takata Corp.
