Toyota, Honda and Nissan have recalled 3.4 million cars worldwide – 1 million in the U.S. alone – due to a defect in the passenger side airbags, according to multiple reports.
Recalled models include the Toyota Corolla, Sequoia, Tundra and Lexus SC 430 made from November 2000 to March 2004. Honda is recalling 2001-2003 Civics, 2002 Odyssey models and 2002-2003 CR-Vs.
The car companies all used Japanese manufacturer Takata Corp to supply the airbags. The airbags on the passenger side might inflate inadvertently or with too much force because the parts were improperly stored in humid conditions and a worker neglected to sift out the defective parts from the functional ones.
