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 will be contacted and notified of the recall, or they can contact their preferred McLaren Retailer by telephone (Monday-Friday, 9am-6pm) or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule an appointment to have the airbag in their vehicle replaced free of charge.
Consumers should make sure their contact details are kept up to date by contacting their preferred McLaren Retailer or by emailing email@example.com
