TOKYO (Reuters) - Honda Motor Co <7267.T> on Thursday said it was recalling around 668,000 vehicles in Japan to replace air bags supplied by Takata Corp <7312.T>.
The Japanese automaker said it had recalled models including its Fit subcompact hatchback model, and the Civic and Accord sedan models over passenger-side air bags. Vehicles produced between 2009 and 2012 were affected, it added.
The latest announcement adds to the tens of millions of vehicles Honda has already recalled due over air bags made by Takata which are at risk of exploding with excessive force.
