Honda issues global airbag recall

Honda heaps more woe on Japanese carmakers by extending an existing airbag safety recall by 437,700 cars worldwide.

It broadens a recall announced in late 2008 for less than 4,000 Accord and Civic sedans, then expanded in mid-2009 to cover another 510,000 vehicles.

The latest announcement also covers Japan, Mexico, Taiwan and Australia.
