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

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