TOKYO (Reuters) - Nissan Motor Co (7201.T: Quote) said on Thursday it would recall around 152,000 cars worldwide that carry potentially defective Takata Corp (7312.T: Quote) air bags.

Japan's No. 2 automaker said it was recalling cars using Takata's passenger side air bags including its Presage minivan models.

Nissan said it expanded its recall after a recent "unusual deployment" of a Takata air bag at a salvage yard in central Japan, which also triggered recalls by Toyota Motor Corp (7203.T: Quote).

The company also said it was recalling 250,000 cars, including its March model in Japan, over separate issues with its door mirrors.
