Takata airbag recall

The Takata airbag recall is the largest vehicle recall in history, more than 2.3 million vehicles in Australia have been recalled since 2009. The airbags are in 60 makes of cars sold in Australia, including Honda, Toyota, BMW, Mitsubishi, Subaru, Lexus, Jeep, Nissan, Chrysler, and Dodge. Two out of every seven cars on Australian roads are affected.

The Australian Competition & Consumer Commission (ACCC) have issued a compulsory recall on all affected vehicles. The compulsory recall requires suppliers of vehicles with defective Takata airbags to replace all defective Takata airbags in Australian vehicles by 31 December 2020 (or later in some instances if approved by the ACCC). Some vehicles will be recalled immediately, and others on a rolling basis, scheduled based on various factors including relative safety risk. This means that not all vehicles will be recalled straight away.

Defective airbags may deploy with too much force, causing sharp metal fragments to shoot out and hit vehicle occupants, potentially injuring or killing them.
