Platinum Import Garage — Imported Mitsubishi Vehicles - Delica & Lancer

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?

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?

Consumers vehicles will be fitted with replacement airbags and should contact the Platinum Import Garage on 07 3601 7103.
