Urgent: 45,000 Honda Australia owners yet to get Takata fix

Honda Australia’s Takata airbag inflator replacement rate is about to hit 90 per cent, with the company’s local arm having swapped a staggering 593,711 of the potentially life-threatening inflator units so far. However, this means there are still 44,719 vehicles, or 67,404 inflators, that haven't yet been replaced. This data is based on VINs/registry information, though some of these vehicles may no longer be roadworthy.
