Honda recalls another 5 million cars with faulty airbags

By ,

Honda is recalling more than 5 million extra vehicles that may have defective airbags supplied by Takata, according to Reuters

This comes a day after Nissan and Toyota added 6.5 million cars to the list. Overall, more than 36 million vehicles worldwide have been recalled due to faulty Takata airbags, which can deploy with too much force and injure or kill front-seat occupants.

So far, six people have died as a direct result, and a $2.5 million class action against Takata was filed a few months ago.

Reuters adds that Takata doesn't plan to set aside more cash reserves for recalls. The company argues the defect cited by automakers was not "officially recognized."
