According to an article in the NY Times, Honda, Toyota, Nissan and Mazda are recalling 3.3 million vehicles worldwide because the passenger side airbag could deploy with too much force, sending shards of metal into the passenger area.
Though automakers said they are not aware of any injuries that have been caused by the airbags yet, the problem is serious enough to warrant these massive recalls. Almost 1.4 million of the vehicles being recalled are in the United States.
