Toyota adds cars to massive airbag recall

(CNN/RNN) - Toyota has recalled 650,000 more cars in Japan over faulty airbags, expanding a recall first announced last year.

The initial recall in April 2013 included 766,300 vehicles in the U.S. Toyota reannounced the U.S. recall in a news release on Wednesday.

U.S. models covered by the recall include some 2003 and 2004 Toyota Corollas, Corolla Matrix and Tundra; some 2002, 2003 and 2004 Sequoias; and some 2002, 2003 and 2004 Lexus SC 430 coupes.

Toyota said it would notify people who own affected vehicles via first-class mail.

Toyota said the recalled cars contain passenger airbag inflators that were manufactured using shoddy parts.

The airbags were manufactured by Takata Corp., a Japan-based supplier.

Toyota said the recall was expanded because the supplier had not provided a complete list of affected serial numbers.

In total, nearly 2.8 million cars worldwide have been recalled over the airbag problem.
