Honda has announced it recalling another 4.8 million cars to replace potentially fatal air bags.
The global recall comes a day after Toyota Motor Corp and Nissan Motor Co announced they were recalling 6.5 million vehicles worldwide.
All three firms used airbags by Japanese company Takata Corp, which investigations showed were not properly sealed and could be damaged by moisture.
The airbags can erupt with too much force, spraying shrapnel inside the car.
Six deaths have so far been linked to the defective air bags, all on cars made by Honda.
Today's recall brings Honda's total number of recalls to 19.6 million vehicles.

Union points out that 160 agency staff also set to lose jobs at Honda. On top of 320 permanent roles. Likely to affect suppliers too.
Unite described the expected loss of 340 jobs at a Honda plant in Swindon as "a devastating blow" and said that the fact people do not "have the cash to spend" should cause the Government serious concern.
These job losses are a devastating blow, not just for these workers but for the thousands more across the industry whose work is dependent on the Honda plant.
Today's losses are also a wake-up call to the UK government.
The economy is far too fragile to proclaim a recovery - those workers losing their jobs today will find claims that the country is turning a corner an insult.
The truth is that there is simply no pick up in the incomes of Honda's customers, either here or in the eurozone.
Honda says 340 jobs likely to go at its factory in Swindon as 3 shifts become 2. Warns "haven't seen growth we'd anticipated" in exports.
