Honda Korea, the local importer of the Japanese car brand, will recall over 1,400 cars sold in South Korea for Takata air bags whose metal inflator can fracture and shoot at passengers when the air bag is deployed, the transportation ministry said Thursday.
The recall affects 1,407 Honda Accord cars produced between Aug. 2, 2011, and July 26, 2012.

"The ministry advises owners of such vehicles to immediately have their cars repaired as the issue has led to fatal accidents in other countries," the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport said in a press release. (Yonhap)
