Toyota announced on Wednesday it’s recalling another 1.7 million vehicles globally as part of the ongoing Takata airbag replacement program.
Around 1.3 million of the vehicles are in the U.S.
The largest multi-automaker recall in history started in 2009 after it was discovered Takata’s airbag inflators could degrade over time and, if activated, spray sharp metal fragments toward the vehicle’s occupants, causing injury or even death.
Toyota’s latest recall involves vehicles manufactured between 2010 and 2015, and includes various Lexus models, as well as Sienna, Corolla, Matrix, Scion XB, and 4Runner vehicles.
Specific details regarding the automobiles involved in the recall can be found on this Toyota webpage.
The Japanese car giant says affected owners will receive direct notification of the recall by first class mail “or other means” starting in late January 2019.
