Japanese car giants Toyota and Nissan are recalling a total of 6.5 million cars to replace potentially faulty airbag inflators made by Takata.

Toyota is recalling just under five million cars, including the Corolla, Vitz and other models made between March 2003 and November 2007.

Nissan is recalling 1.56 million cars over the same issue.

Both carmakers said the recall was for investigative purposes and no accidents or injuries have been reported.

Toyota, the world’s biggest carmaker, said the recall affected 35 of its models made around the world.

The move is the latest in the saga of potentially exploding airbags made by Japanese car parts maker Takata.

About 25 million vehicles with Takata airbags have been recalled by 10 different carmakers since 2008.
