Recall of Takata air bags in US could grow by 35 million: source

Expansion could bring total to 63 million - possibly affecting nearly 1-in-4 of 250 million vehicles on US roads

Takata said on Monday that it planned to book special one-time charges totalling 20.1 billion yen (S$255 million) to cover recall costs and settlements with consumers injured by its inflaters.

REGULATORS were expected to announce as early as Wednesday that at least 35 million additional air bags made by Takata will need to be fixed, according to a person briefed on the matter. This would more than double what is already the largest vehicle recall in US history.
