While Toyota Motor will recall 50,738 vehicles, Honda will recall 24,522, and Nissan 35,964 vehicles built in 2000-2001 due to problems with the airbag inflator in the passenger seat that causes shards to fly out when the airbag opens, reports quoting ministry said.
The recalls affect vehicles built in 2000-2001 including Toyota's popular Corolla, Honda's Fit and Nissan's Cube, the reports said.
Quoting officials, local media reports said Toyota, Nissan and Mitsubishi Motor also issued separate recalls due to faulty seat belts that fail to buckle up, adding that the recall also affects cars built this year including 101 Toyotas, 4,020 Nissans and 1,600 Mitsubishi Motors.
