Important Notice - Airbag recall

We would like to draw your attention to the mandatory recall of certain motor vehicles, issued by the Assistant Minister to the Treasurer, the Hon Michael Sukkar MP.

On 28 February 2018, the compulsory recall was issued for front driver and/or front passenger airbag inflators manufactured by Takata Corporation.

The compulsory recall was issued based on evidence provided by the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC), including that:

    a reasonably foreseeable use of vehicles with defective Takata airbags may cause injury to drivers and/or passengers, and;
    one or more suppliers of vehicles with defective Takata airbags have not taken satisfactory action to prevent those vehicles causing injury to drivers and/or passengers.

We urge you to check the vehicle recall list and/or refer to your car manufacturer if you have any concerns.

For further information on the recall, visit the ACCC website.
