Toyota adds 198,000 U.S. vehicles to Takata airbag recalls

DETROIT (Reuters) — Toyota Motor Corp. said today it is expanding its recall of cars with Takata Corp. airbags by 198,000 in the U.S.

Globally, the recall covers 356,000 total vehicles, Toyota said.

The fresh recall will include 2008 model year Corolla and Corolla Matrix as well as 2008 to 2010 model years Lexus SC430 vehicles.

An estimated 29 million Takata airbag inflators have been recalled in the United States, in more than 19 million vehicles, because the inflators can activate with too much force, sending potentially deadly metal shards into the passenger compartment.
