Two automakers are expanding their Takata-airbag-related recalls. Chrysler is adding more than 200,000 vehicles to its regional recall of front passenger-side airbag inflators, while Mazda is following Honda’s lead and expanding its recall of approximately 330,000 vehicles to now include the driver-side Takata airbag.

In late November, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration told Chrysler to expand its June recall of cars with defective Takata airbags by Dec. 1. The expanded recall is for 208,783 older-model vehicles in areas with high humidity, according to a statement from Chrysler. The automaker’s original recall included about 69,000 cars in Florida, Hawaii, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
Chrysler’s latest recall affects vehicles purchased, ever registered in or still registered in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Hawaii, Louisiana, Mississippi and Texas as well as American Samoa, Guam, Puerto Rico, Saipan and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
