Important notice: Takata airbags

On 28 February 2018, the Australian Government announced a compulsory recall of vehicles fitted with defective Takata airbags. These airbags can misdeploy causing death or serious injury.

The Department of Transport is presently assisting the ACCC with the recall through the provision of information to owners, vehicle manufacturers and retailers, with Alpha airbags remaining the priority.

Take immediate steps to organise a free airbag replacement if you have been contacted. If your vehicle has an Alpha airbag and no action is taken, your vehicle licence (registration) will be cancelled. Drivers are also urged to check whether their vehicle is affected by visiting the Takata airbag recalls list on the  Product Safety Australia website.
