DETROIT (Reuters) -- General Motors is recalling about 375,000 heavy-duty pickup trucks equipped with passenger-side airbag inflators made by Takata Corp.
The trucks are 2007 and 2008 model Chevrolet Silverados and GM Sierras.
Subaru will expand its recall of 2004 and 2005 model Impreza compact cars with Takata airbags to about 80,000 from 20,000, the company said Friday.
Both automakers said they have received no reports of inadvertent deployments of airbags in the vehicles.
The latest actions follow an agreement last week between Takata and U.S. safety regulators to expand the recalls of vehicles with potentially faulty Takata airbag inflators.
The inflators have exploded with too much force, sending shrapnel into the vehicles. Six people have been killed, all of them in Honda Motor Co. cars.
Twelve incorrect deployments of Takata airbags have occurred in Toyota and Honda vehicles in Japan since 2011, Nikkei reported on Friday, citing a Japanese transport ministry official. No injuries were reported in these incidents.
Takata airbags have been the subject of U.S. Congressional hearings held late last year. Another hearing, before the Subcommittee on Commerce, Manufacturing and Trade, will be held next Tuesday.
On Thursday, five automakers expanded recalls by several million vehicles with Takata airbags.
No root cause for the defect has been found. Takata managers want the automakers to share some of the blame for the malfunctioning air bags, sources told Reuters this week, as well as some of the financial burden.
