Mitsubishi, Honda and Yamaha are recalling vehicles in Japan, according to a Bloomberg News report.

According to Bloomberg, Japan’s transport ministry said Mitsubishi will recall 32,000 Lancer sedans made between January 1998 and April 2002 to fix faults in the exhaust system; Honda will voluntarily repair 18,081 Odyssey minivans built from November 1999 to February 2000 to fix a bolt in the engine, and Yamaha is recalling 5,849 Drag Star motorcycles.

Bloomberg News said recalls and voluntary vehicle repairs have come under closer scrutiny in Japan since Mitsubishi Motors recalled more than two million cars in 2000 and 2001 after admitting hiding customer complaints for more than two decades.

In Japan, a recall is when a car maker calls in a product that doesn’t meet legally defined safety standards while voluntary repairs cover issues not regulated by law, Bloomberg said.
