Mustang Australia Pty Ltd — Ford Mustang MY2006-2014
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 of an airbag inflator rupture, metal fragments could possibly shoot out, straight through the airbag cushion material towards the vehicle occupants causing serious injury or fatality.
What should consumers do?
Owners of affected vehicles should contact Mustang Australia directly by phoning 02 9438 5300 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange for a replacement airbag inflator free of charge.
