Takata airbag recall

A large number of vehicle recalls have been announced due to faulty Takata airbags. Car owners should check whether their vehicles are affected by the recall.

Full list of vehicles - Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC).

If your vehicle is listed, or you are unsure if your vehicle is affected, contact an authorised vehicle dealership or the vehicle manufacturer as soon as possible.

Registration refused for vehicles with defective airbags

From 1 November 2018, notification will be issued to owners of vehicles affected giving them 30 days to provide evidence that they have had their defective airbag replaced.

If no response is received after the 30 days a safety incident will be placed against the vehicle record which will prevent registration related transactions.

Under no circumstances will an incident be lifted, unless suitable evidence is provided confirming a defective airbag has been replaced.

More information on vehicles with defective airbags being refused registration can be found on the Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure website.
