The Assistant Minister to the Treasurer, the Hon Michael Sukkar, has issued a compulsory recall for all vehicles with defective Takata airbags, following an ACCC safety investigation.
This compulsory recall affects about 2 in 7 Australian vehicles:
- all vehicles that are subject to existing Takata voluntary recalls, and
- approximately 1.3 million additional vehicles that have not been voluntarily recalled.
The compulsory recall requires suppliers of vehicles with defective Takata airbags to replace all defective Takata airbags in Australian vehicles by 31 December 2020
