Honda and Toyota are issuing recalls on more than 1 million more USA vehicles to take care of air bag inflators made by Takata.

The recalls come after Japanese company Takata revealed that another 3.3 million inflators were defective.

NHTSA said in November that 19 automakers had recalled 46 million inflators in 34 million USA vehicles - and by 2019 as many as 70 million US inflators will have been recalled. Toyota and Lexus dealers will replace either the front passenger air bag inflator or the front passenger air bag assembly for free.

According to a Toyota press release, the safety defect may arise in the front passenger air bag inflators in the involved vehicles due to inflator propellant degradation occurring after prolonged exposure to high absolute humidity, high temperatures and high temperature recycling.This may cause an inflator rupture when the air bag deploys.

The Takata devices have been linked to 20 deaths and 180 people hurt worldwide. The latest recalls cover frontal air bags in certain 2009, 2010 and 2013 vehicles made Honda, Toyota, Audi, BMW, Daimler Vans, Fiat Chrysler, Ford, General Motors, Jaguar-Land Rover, Mazda, Mercedes-Benz, Mitsubishi, Nissan, Subaru and Tesla. Also covered are the 2010 and 2013 Toyota 4-Runner, Lexus IS250C and 350C and Lexus GX460, as well as the 2009 and 2010 Toyota Yaris and Lexus ES350, and the 2013 Toyota Sienna.

In May past year, six thousand more Kiwi auto owners had their vehicles recalled after Toyota announced there were concerns related to passenger-side air bags.

Approximately 465,000 additional Honda and Acura vehicles in the United States will be included in the expanded recall.

Honda said owners of affected vehicles can get repairs immediately.

- Acura TSX, Honda Fit, Honda Ridgeline and Honda Pilot from the 2009-2013 model years.

- Honda Crosstour, Honda Insight and Acura ZDX from the 2010-2013 model years.

- Honda FCX Clarity and Honda Fit EV from the 2013 model year.
