Toyota tops Takata creditor list with $2.9bn claim

Acknowledged debts hit $9.5bn, but overseas creditors could raise that figure

| Japan

TOKYO -- Bankrupt Japanese air bag supplier Takata owes Toyota Motor 331.2 billion yen ($2.91 billion), the largest amount among all creditors, according to a document The Nikkei obtained on Friday.

Japan's big automakers feature prominently on a creditor list Takata submitted to the Tokyo District Court, due to the burden of recalling the supplier's faulty products. After Toyota, Honda Motor and Mazda Motor rank second and third, with Nissan Motor in fifth.
