Toyota and Nissan are to recall 6.5 million cars globally due to an airbag safety issue.
Toyota is recalling five million cars across 35 model lines built between 2003 and 2007, while Nissan is to recall 1.56 million vehicles.
It is as yet unclear how many affected vehicles have been sold in Europe.
The airbags in question are produced by parts manufacturer Takata. According to the BBC, 25 million vehicles with Takata airbags have been recalled worldwide by 10 different manufacturers since 2008.
Honda told the BBC it was also preparing to announce more car recalls related to the airbags.
