Luxury cars are among vehicles being recalled, including Tesla, BMW, Mercedes, and Ferrari.

The largest series of automotive recalls in US history was made Friday again because of faulty air bags made by the Takata Corporation of Japan. Because the enormous, global recall is being carried out in stages, another 10 million cars are expected to be recalled later this year.

The airbag recalls, which began in 2001, are being phased in over time and managed by the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

Subaru: 826,144 vehicles from 2010-14 including Foresters, Legacys, and Outbacks. Mercedes is recalling 288,779 vehicles from model years 2010 to 2017.

BMW: 266,044 vehicles from model years 2000-04. Only 27.2 million of those had been replaced by the end of 2018, meaning millions of motorists are still driving a auto equipped with an airbag inflator that's directly linked to over 20 deaths worldwide.

Volkswagen/Audi: 119,394 vehicles from model years 2015-17.

Daimler's van division, Tesla, and Ferrari recalled 159,689, 68,763, and 11,176 cars, respectively. That leaves more than 23 million yet to be replaced, according to the NHTSA website.

The most recent recall follows a recall last September from Honda and Accura that affected 1.4 million vehicles, and another last December from Toyota and Lexus that included 65,000.

The recalls forced Takata Corp.to seek bankruptcy protection and sell most of its assets to pay for the fixes.
