Toyota and Lexus Recall 601,000 Vehicles to Replace Takata Inflators
Toyota and Lexus have now recalled nearly 6 million Takata airbag inflators.

— Toyota and Lexus are recalling more than 601,000 vehicles to replace passenger Takata airbag inflators, part of a Takata recall expansion involving more than 3 million inflators affecting multiple automakers.

The airbags are at risk of exploding due to a combination of age, moisture and the condition of the metal inflators. At least 21 people have been killed worldwide and more than 200 injured.

As of November 2017, 19 automakers had recalled about 46 million Takata inflators in about 34 million vehicles, with Toyota recalling more than 5 million of those inflators. Toyota and Lexus have replaced less than half of those inflators, and this latest recall will only delay the completion of repairs.

By 2019, as many as 70 million Takata inflators will have been recalled in the U.S.
