Toyota recalls 190,000 vehicles in Japan, China to repair Takara air bags

TOKYO – Toyota Motor Corp will recollect 190,000 vehicles in Japan and China to repair faulty front passenger-side air bags made by Takata Corporation, the most recent in a long line of recalls for the embattled auto safety parts supplier.
The recall followed an unusual deployment of a Takata-made air bag in Toyota’s 2003-model Will Cypha at a scrapyard last month, Japan’s transport ministry said.
Toyota will recall 185,000 vehicles across 19 models including the Corolla and Alphard in Japan. Another 5,000 cars will be recalled in China.
Toyota said it was recalling the cars as a precautionary measure and that the cause of the problem was not yet known. It was not aware of injuries or deaths related to the problem.
