Cars With Faulty Airbags Are Recalled Second Time, but Fix May Take a Year

Federal regulators said replacement parts might not be fully available until the end of the year.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said on Saturday that it knew of three injuries but no deaths from unexpected airbag deployments. About one million of the Honda and Toyota models are also covered by recalls for defective inflaters made by the airbag manufacturer Takata that can deploy with too much force and send pieces of metal into the interior of the vehicle.
