China's quality watchdog has issued recalls for more than 40 domestically produced and imported models made from 1999 to 2014 from Honda, Nissan, Mazda, Toyota, Subaru and BMW, among others. More automakers are investigating airbags supplied from Takata. In the Unite States, carmakers have recalled 28.8 million vehicles because of safety issues with airbags from Takata.
