If you would wish to know whether your car has been affected by the Takata Airbags, please log into onemotoring website> search vehicle recall>key in your vehicle no. and IC no. to confirm.
Details of Defect/ Non-Compliance:-
The affected vehicles were equipped with Takata Airbags inflators which may have been manufactured in such a way where there is a potential for intrusion of moisture overtime. Moisture intrusion from humidity, high temperature and decay over time can lead to an aibag improperly deployed, creating a stronger than expected ignition, and even spraying shrapnel into the car cabin.
The manufacturer has recommended the existing inflator system with replacement airbags from Takata, or STOP it’s function. Parallel imported vehicles from Japan are unable to get free replacement parts from the manufacturer in Japan. A new inflator system will cost $2,800SGD per unit, but its supply is hard to come by due to Takata’s deepening financial crisis and scale of it’s recall.
