FCA Australia Pty Ltd — MY 2016 - 2018 Alfa Romeo Giulietta
What are the defects?
An incorrect software file in affected vehicles allows the vehicle operator to deactivate the passenger side airbag by selecting this in the menus of the instrument panel of the vehicle.
What are the hazards?
In an event where the passenger dash airbag would normally deploy and the vehicle operator had switched off or disabled the passenger frontal (dash) SRS airbag device, there could be an increased risk of injury to an occupant of the front passenger seat.
What should consumers do?
Affected owners will be contacted when a software fix becomes available to remove this option. Owners will then be able to schedule an appointment with their nearest authorised Alfa Romeo dealer for rectification.
