Toyota Adds 1.36 Million Cars to Recall List
June 17, 2015—On Tuesday, Toyota added 1.36 million cars to its list of those needing repairs due to the government expansion of the Takata airbag recalls.
The announcement comes a day after Honda said it will recall another 1.39 million cars, according to a report by USA Today.
These recalls were expected as part of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s (NHTSA) expanded recall which added 33.8 million cars. Since the announcement, 11 affected automakers have been trying to figure out which of their models need to be included.
For Toyota, the additional models will include 2003 to 2007 Corolla and Corolla Matrix; 2005 to 2006 Tundra; 2005 to 2007 Sequoia; and 2003 to 2007 Lexus SC430 vehicles. Toyota says the new additions bring the number of Toyota and Lexus vehicles covered by Takata recalls in the U.S. to about 2.9 million, according to USA Today.
