TOKYO: Honda Motor Co is adding 437,000 vehicles to its 15-month-old global recall for faulty air bags in the latest quality problem to hit a Japanese automaker.

The company will replace the driver's side air bag inflator in the cars because they can deploy with too much pressure, causing the inflator to rupture and injure or kill the driver.

Japan's No 2 automaker originally announced the recall to the US National Highway Traffic Safety Administration in November 2008 and the total of number of vehicles recalled since then is approaching 1 million.
