DETROIT (AP) – Six automakers, including Toyota, Honda and Nissan, are recalling nearly 3.4 million older-model vehicles worldwide because of defective air bags that can send shrapnel flying into the passenger compartment. The recall mainly affects cars sold by Japanese automakers in North America, Europe and Japan.
The front passenger air bags all were made by the same parts supplier, Japan’s Takata Corp. They have faulty inflator mechanisms that don’t route gas into the air bags. Instead, the high-pressure gas can launch plastic and metal parts from the air bags into the cars’ passenger areas. Takata says no one has been hurt, but there have been six incidents of the air bags deploying improperly on roadways.
The recall, announced Thursday in Japan, is so large because many automakers use common parts on multiple models to cut costs and simplify manufacturing. This approach was pioneered by Japanese automakers.
The recall will bring a great deal of unwelcome publicity for automakers, especially Toyota Motor Corp. (TM), said IHS Automotive analyst Paul Newton. The world’s top-selling car company is trying to rebuild a reputation for quality that was hurt by previous big recalls.
The latest recall is the fourth for Toyota since October that involves more than one million vehicles, Newton wrote in an email. And the company endured a series of huge recalls in 2009 and 2010 for faulty braking, sticky gas pedals and defective floor mats.
Toyota will have to inspect or fix 1.7 million vehicles worldwide, including about 580,000 in North America, 490,000 in Europe and 320,000 in Japan. The models include the Corolla compact, Matrix hatchback, Sequoia SUV, and Tundra pickup, as well as the Lexus SC 430 sports car. All the vehicles were manufactured from 2001 to 2003.
But the latest recall affects other major automakers, including Toyota’s chief Japanese competitor. Honda Motor Co. is recalling 1.1 million vehicles worldwide, including about 680,000 in North America, 270,000 in Japan and 64,000 in Europe. Models include the Civic compact, CR-V small SUV and Odyssey minivan from the 2001 to 2003 model years.
Also, Nissan Motor Co. is recalling 480,000 vehicles worldwide, including about 265,000 in the U.S. Models include the Nissan Maxima midsize sedan, Pathfinder SUV and Sentra compact as well as the Infiniti FX crossover and QX4 SUV, all from the 2001-2003 model years. Recalled models in Japan include the Cube, X-Trail, Maxima and Teana.
Mazda Motor Co. is also part of the recall. About 45,000 Mazda RX-8 and Mazda 6 cars are affected, including 4,000 in Japan. The company said recalls will be announced in North America, Europe, China and elsewhere.
At GM, only 55,000 Pontiac Vibe hatchbacks sold in the U.S. and Canada are being recalled. The 2003 models are nearly identical to the Toyota Matrix and were made at a California plant that was jointly run with Toyota.

In a recent article in Car and Driver (April 2013), the author Steven Cole Smith offered great advice on “Buying Peace Of Mind For A Used Car.” Smith stated that the safest way to purchase that peace of mind is buying a Certified Pre-Owned vehicle with a warranty provided by the manufacturer. But not all cars can be certifed. So if you’re purchasing a used vehicle that is not certified, here are some tips offered in that article.
1. Never buy a warranty based strictly on a phone sales pitch.
2. Always have a contract in hand for review before you make a decision.
3. Don’t be taken in by “today only” price pitches.
4. Every contract has an “insurer” or “underwriter.” Find out who that is and check that company at ambest.com, the website for A.M. Best, a century-old insurance-rating service.
5. Make sure you know your deductible, and that is is only charged once per repair visit.
6. Never buy a warranty based on the performance of a product – a bottle of magic liquid, for example. That tactic is a way around certain consumer-protection laws.
7. Buy from a company that pays directly for repairs, not one that says it will reimburse you.
8. Extended warranties are often transferable. When you purchase a car with an extended warranty, paying a transfer fee (which usually varies by state) will transfer the remaining coverage.
9. Get the refund policy in writing. If you sell the car and don’t transfer the warranty to somebody else, you should be entitled to a refund for the unused portion of the warranty.
Apple Chevrolet offers Extended Service Contracts through a company that has been in business a long time, EasyCare. In business since 1984, EasyCare has been repeatedly declared a MotorTrend Recommended Best Buy year after year. The company sells its contracts outright or through more than 2000 dealers. Although it recommends that you use the selling dealer for service, any licensed repair facility is acceptable.
For more information about an EasyCare Extended Service Contract, call Ken Wagner or Chet Palumbo at Apple Chevrolet’s Finance Department at 708-429-3000.
