The Federal Chamber of Automotive Industries (FCAI) extends its deepest sympathies to the family and friends of the man involved in the tragic incident of July 13 and we understand that Honda Australia is working closely to provide whatever assistance is required.
The Takata airbag recall is an international issue involving more than 60 million vehicles worldwide, including some 2.3 million vehicles in Australia. The recall process has been underway internationally since 2009.
The industry joins the call from government and the ACCC in strongly urging all owners to assess whether their vehicle is affected and if so, to urgently contact their authorised dealer network. The industry will continue to work with the Government on this process. A link to the full list of vehicles affected can be found on the FCAI website or via www.productsafety.gov.au.
More than 850,000 affected vehicles in Australia have been rectified and it is the industry’s steadfast resolve to get in contact with the remaining owners to complete the recall.
Throughout this recall campaign, the industry has acted with the utmost concern for the safety of vehicle owners and will continue to do so.
