Seven automakers are adding nearly 4.4 million vehicles in the U.S. to the massive Takata air bag inflator recall.Documents detailing recalls by General Motors, Volkswagen, Ford, Daimler Vans, BMW, Jaguar-Land Rover and Mercedes-Benz were posted Thursday by the government. Recalls from eight other companies were posted last Friday.Seventeen automakers are adding 35 million-to-40 million inflators to what already was the largest auto recall in U.S. history.On Wednesday, a U.S. Senate report found that Fiat Chrysler, Mitsubishi, Toyota and Volkswagen are selling new vehicles with Takata air bag inflators even though the devices are likely to be recalled within a few years. The inflators haven't been recalled yet, so it's legal for the cars to be sold.Before the latest expansion, automakers had recalled 28.8 million Takata inflators, so as many as 69 million could be recalled in the U.S. alone.
