The vehicles were previously recalled to replace the old Takata airbag inflators with new Takata inflators, but that was only a temporary remedy. The latest recall is expected to use permanent remedy inflators.
The airbag inflators currently in the vehicles are at risk of exploding and sending sharp pieces of metal into occupants.
