Car buyers troubled by Toyota’s recalls may have considered turning their attention to Honda, another Japanese automaker with a sterling reputation for reliability. Unfortunately, the second-biggest Japanese automaker just announced an expanded recall of its own.

A recall that began over a year ago with just a few thousand vehicles now covers 437,763 cars worldwide. The affected models were all built in 2001 and 2002 and include some of Honda’s most popular products. For a full list, see Honda’s press release.

According to the company’s statement, the airbags in some of its cars might release with too much force.
