From time to time, vehicle manufacturers issue voluntary or compulsory recalls which relate to vehicle safety.
It is important to check that your vehicle has no outstanding recalls, and if it does, that you have the vehicle recall action completed by the vehicle manufacturer through their dealer network.
To ensure you are able to be notified should your vehicle be involved in any active or future recalls, make sure the contact details listed against your vehicle are up-to-date by informing your vehicle manufacturer or dealer.
Compulsory Takata recall
The Minister decided to issue a compulsory recall because, based on extensive evidence provided by the ACCC, it appeared to him 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.
