Takata: Brands with lower completion rates still on track with mandatory recall

Australia's Takata airbag recall is almost 80 per cent complete, but the ACCC data says there are three brands with a conversion rate below 70 per cent. A combination of heat and humidity can make the propellant in Takata airbag inflators degrade over time. In an accident where the airbags deploy, metal fragments could shoot into the cabin, posing a serious risk of injury or death to passengers.

VFACTS: Chinese brands continue to rise

Despite the continued decline in overall new car sales, brands from China are posting triple-digit growth – namely Haval and MG.

However, SUV specialist Haval recorded a 164.2 per cent increase on July 2018 (albeit off a low base) to 140 registrations, while its YTD tally of 783 vehicles is up 155 per cent on the same period last year.

Ram 1500: Older 'Classic' in line for an update
