Toyota is recalling more than half a million vehicles in Japan over faulty airbags.
Tuesday's announcement expands on a recall first announced last year.
The initial recall in April 2013 included more than 1.8 million Toyota cars sold in foreign markets, along with a few hundred thousand in Japan.
Toyota said the recalled cars contain passenger airbag inflators that were manufactured using shoddy parts.
The airbags were manufactured by Takata Corporation, a Japan based supplier.
Toyota said the recall was expanded because the supplier had not provided a complete list of affected serial numbers.
In total, nearly 2.8 million cars have been recalled over the airbag problem.
