There were 772,000 vehicles in the U.S. that were affected by a broadened recall issued by Japanese automaker Honda Motor Co., due to concerns about the potentially dangerous Takata airbag inflators that the vehicles have, a Fox News article reported on January 11.
According to reports, the recall was announced on January 10 after determining which vehicles have the Takata inflators installed in the front passenger seats. The faulty inflators could cause the airbags to burst and have been linked to more than a dozen fatalities and hundreds of injury complaints. The number of recalled vehicles in this expanded group has now reached an estimated 1.29 million vehicles. At least 15 models of Honda vehicles are affected by the recall. Over 100 million vehicles worldwide, 69 million of which are in the U.S., have been recalled by 17 auto manufacturers since the first recall was issued.

An investigation was recently opened by the federal auto safety regulations offices regarding Jaguar Land Rover vehicles after several reports of the vehicles suddenly moving while in “park”, some including injured parties, were received by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), an article of Tech Times reported on January 3.
Reports said the NHTSA is investigating some previous models of Jaguar sedans and Land Rover SUVs that could roll away, even if the driver had shifted the transmission to “park” mode. The NHTSA’s Office of Defects Investigation has been notified of seven rollaway incidents, four of which have resulted in personal injuries. The investigation was opened for federal authorities and the car manufacturer to figure out if a recall is needed to address the issue.
