Hino Motor Sales Australia Pty Ltd — MY 2013 Hino 300 Series

Identifying features

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?

This may cause the inflator to rupture if the airbag is activated. This may cause injury to the vehicle occupants.

What should consumers do?

Owners of affected vehicles should contact their local Hino dealership or Hino head office directly via the website at http://www.hino.com.au/care-centre/ to arrange for a replacement airbag inflator free of charge.

Consumers who are unsure whether they are affected can contact Hino on 1300 01 HINO (1300 014 466) or contact their preferred dealer.
