Victorian American Imports Pty Ltd — Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra MY2007-2008
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 should contact Victorian American Imports directly by phoning 03 5176 0600 or emailing email@example.com to arrange for a replacement airbag inflator free of charge.
