Front passenger side airbag inflators

309 affected vehicles

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?

Owners of affected vehicles should contact Performax International via the website at http://www.performaxint.com.au/contact to arrange for a replacement airbag inflator free of charge.

Consumers who are unsure whether they are affected can contact Performax International on
1800 737 367.  Consumers will be advised by Performax International when parts become available.
