What are the defects?

Airbag inflator: As it gets older, a combination of high temperatures and humidity can cause the airbag inflator propellant to degrade. If an affected vehicle is involved in a collision triggering the airbag, the metal inflator housing may explode/rupture under too much internal pressure.

What are the hazards?

In the event that a defective airbag inflator ruptures, metal fragments may propel out through the airbag cushion towards the vehicle occupants causing serious injury or fatality.

What should consumers do?

Owners of affected vehicles in Queensland, Northern Territory, Western Australia, New South Wales and Australian Capital Territory should contact their local Holden dealership or contact Holden Customer Care on 1800 632 826 to arrange for a replacement airbag inflator free of charge. If you are unsure if your vehicle is affected, enquire at your local Holden dealership or contact Holden Customer Care.
