Identifying features

Reasons the product is recalled

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.

The hazards to consumers

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 consumers should do

Owners of affected vehicles should contact Performax International via the website at 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.
