Toyota recalls another 1.7 million cars over faulty airbags

The problems with Takata's potentially defective airbags persist years after they began.

The new effort covers vehicles made between 2010 and 2015 and comes just weeks after Toyota issued a repeat recall for 65,000 cars after concerns an initial fix still wasn't safe.

Ford said last week that it was recalling just shy of 1 million cars in the US due to their Takata airbags.

This was already the largest recall effort to date, with 37 million cars requiring fixes in the US alone.

It's been expensive, too, with Honda , Nissan and others setting aside hundreds of millions of dollars to settle claims.

Takata itself filed for bankruptcy in 2017 after recalls and fraud settlements sank its business.
