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 Victorian American Imports on 03 5176 0600 to arrange for a replacement airbag inflator, free of charge.

When parts become available consumers will be advised by Victorian American Imports to organise an inspection and repair of the vehicle.
