Japanese cars recalled over airbags

Toyota is recalling 76,000 vehicles bought in the UK in the period November 2000 to March 2004

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

The problem relates to the air bag inflater 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 in the period November 2000 to March 2004, while Honda is recalling 15,400 UK-bought vehicles made between 2001 and 2004.

Nissan is also recalling some vehicles manufactured between 2000 and 2004 in the UK.

The Toyota recall involves models such as the Corolla and the Yaris, while the Honda recall involves the Civic, the CRV and the FRV.

Worldwide, Toyota, Honda and Nissan are recalling more than two million vehicles.

Nissan said that 59,058 of its cars sold in the UK are affected by the recall, including the X-Trail, Patrol, Almera, and Navara models.
