Car airbag issue recall

Have your say

Thousands of UK cars are being recalled due to an airbag problem.

The problem relates to the airbag inflator on the passenger side of vehicles, which may burst and send pieces of plastic flying. There have been five incidents – in the USA and Japan – but there were no injuries.

Toyota is recalling 76,000 vehicles bought in the UK from 2000-2004, while Honda is recalling 15,400 UK-bought vehicles made between 2001 and 2004. Nissan is recalling some vehicles made between 2000 and 2004. Some 1,913 Mazda 6 models bought in the UK in 2002-03 are also being recalled.
