Due to two different air bag glitches, Toyota and Honda has to recall over 6 million vehicles worldwide, and both problems present different dangers to motorists.

3.4 million vehicles will be affected globally by the Toyota recall.The recall is due to air bags that are at high risk of not inflating in a crash. According to an article I read, the cars have air bag control computers that are vulnerable to electrical interference and may not signal the bags to inflate.

The problem could affect as many as 12.3 million vehicles in the U.S. made by six companies.U.S. safety regulation are investing, as eight people were possibly killed when air bags didn't inflate.

Honda's recall covers about 2.7 million vehicles in the U.S. and Canada.  However, they are a different version than the ones blamed for 25 deaths worldwide. Still, it's possible the air bags could blow apart a metal canister and hurl shrapnel at drivers and passengers.

If you own a Honda or Toyota, you should call or go to your local dealer as soon as possible.
