The Australian Government issued a Proposed Recall Notice for a compulsory recall of all vehicles with defective Takata airbags installed, following an Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) safety investigation.
The Government has released a comprehensive report from the Department of Infrastructure and Regional Development on the progress and current status of the Takata airbag recall program. “I sought this urgent report following the recent tragic death of a motorist in Sydney allegedly caused by a faulty Takata airbag,” said Minister for Urban Infrastructure Paul
Small Business Minister Michael McCormack has issued a Safety Warning Notice to warn consumers of the possible risks presented by the use of vehicles fitted with Takata airbags.
In July 2016 Honda Australia Motorcycle and Power Equipment (Honda) received official notification of an airbag recall for all 2008, 2009, 2010 and subsequently 2012 Honda Goldwing GL1800 models, in the wake of the global Takata inflator issue.
The tragic recent death of a motorist at Cabramatta in Sydney is a powerful reminder to Australians to check whether they own a vehicle equipped with potentially faulty Takata airbags.
