The Takata airbag recall saga continues, and now it has been discovered that a further 1.7 million vehicles have been recalled for potentially faulty airbag inflators, according to the Associated Press.

The latest round of recalls include Subaru with 826,144 vehicles, consisting of Forester, Legacy and Outback models between 2010 and 2014. Also affected are Mercedes-Benz with 288,779 vehicles from 2010 to 2017, Volkswagen and Audi with 119,394 vehicles, and BMW with 266,044 vehicles from 2000 to 2004 and from 2007 to 2015.

Recalls also hit Daimler Vans with 159,689 vehicles from 2015 to 2017, Tesla with 68,763 units of the Model S from 2014 to 2016 and Ferrari with 11,176 vehicles from 2014 to 2018. Ford, Honda, Toyota, and Fiat Chrysler have also made their recalls for 2019 totalling five million vehicles, the Associated Press noted.

As of the beginning of last year, the United States alone saw 19 automakers involved in the airbag inflator crisis, with around 69 million inflators from 42 million vehicles involved in the recall. In 2017, the safety systems manufacturer filed for bankruptcy in Japan and Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in the United States as the crisis unfolded, in order to pay for the repairs.

At least 23 people have died and hundreds more have been injured due to the inflators exerting more force than their design intended, resulting in shrapnel propelled into drivers and passengers. In Malaysia, over 500,000 cars were found to be installed with faulty Takata airbags last year.
