Nissan and Toyota recall over 6.5 million vehicles over exploding airbag issues

Nissan and Toyota recalled more than 6.5 million vehicles globally due to the airbag issue. This recall is a part of the global recall by the airbag manufacturer, Takata.

The world's biggest automaker said its recall of five million vehicles affected 35 models globally, they were produced between 2003 and 2007. Nissan has said it was calling back 1.56 million vehicles also, due to faulty airbags made by supplier Takata. The affected Nissan models have been manufactured between 2004 and 2008.

Before this recall, almost 20 million vehicles produced by automakers including General Motors and Honda were recalled because of the risk that their Takata-made airbags could improperly inflate [FV2] and rupture, potentially firing deadly shrapnel at the occupants. Till now, five deaths have been reported linked to this airbag issue, with one being investigated as murder in the United States.
