CBS 8 is on your side with a consumer alert...

TOYOTA HAS RECALLED 650-THOUSAND MORE CARS IN JAPAN OVER FAULTY AIRBAGS, EXPANDING A RECALL FIRST ANNOUNCED LAST YEAR. THE INITIAL RECALL IN APRIL 20-13 INCLUDED MORE THAN ONE-POINT-EIGHT MILLION TOYOTA CARS SOLD IN FOREIGN MARKETS, ALONG WITH A FEW HUNDRED THOUSAND IN JAPAN.

TOYOTA SAID THE RECALLED CARS CONTAIN PASSENGER AIRBAG INFLATORS THAT WERE MANUFACTURED USING SHODDY PARTS. TOYOTA SAID THE RECALL WAS EXPANDED BECAUSE THE SUPPLIER HAD NOT PROVIDED A COMPLETE LIST OF AFFECTED SERIAL NUMBERS. IN TOTAL, NEARLY TWO-POINT-EIGHT MILLION CARS HAVE BEEN RECALLED OVER THE AIRBAG PROBLEM.
