Fiat Chrysler, Honda and BMW expand airbag recall
Three big carmakers have expanded recalls of vehicles with faulty airbags.
The move from Fiat Chrysler, Honda and BMW comes after Takata Corporation; the Japanese airbag maker last week said the number of vehicles affected was 53 million globally.
Of that figure, 34 million are in the US, making it the country's largest ever recall of cars.
The faulty airbags, when exposed to too much moisture, can explode.
Regulators have linked the problem to six deaths worldwide, all in Honda vehicles.
Honda has called back about 690 thousand cars in the US and Japan.
