AIRBAG RECALL July 24 2017

More than 2.1 million cars all over Australia have been recalled due to unsafe Takata Airbags, making it the largest vehicle-related recall in Australian history.  According to the U.S. Justice Department, Takata “repeatedly and systematically falsified critical test data related to the safety of its products”.  As of 23 July 2017, more than 180 people have sustained injuries and some have died, including one Australian, because of the faulty airbags.

Where to from here?

The first step is to identify if your vehicle is affected by the Takata recall.  Manufacturers have been contacting affected owners but have had difficulty tracking down older cars – which are the most vulnerable. 

Then contact your vehicle manufacturer immediately.
