LONDON: Honda Motor Co (7267) said that it was increasing its recall of cars due to faulty Takata Corp (7312.T) air bags to a countrywide campaign.
The recall affects 2001-2011 Honda and Acura vehicles, the company said in a statement.
An earlier regional recall had been limited to areas of high humidity, which could cause the air bags’ inflator to rupture and send metal shards flying into the vehicle. Including the earlier recall, a total of 5.4 million vehicles will be covered, Honda said.
