Toyota recalled nearly 6 million vehicles due to more issues with Takata airbags.

The Takata airbag issue that has rankled the auto industry for over a year refuses to die, with Toyota (TM) - Get Report announcing the recall of another 5.8 million vehicles equipped with the airbags, which lack a drying agent designed to prevent the buildup of moisture.
