Volkswagen Eos, Golf, Passat recalled for Takata airbags

Volkswagen Australia has initiated its recall for the older-generation Eos, Golf and Passat model lines as part of the ongoing Takata airbag campaign. This particular notice involves vehicles with potentially faulty driver's side inflators, which like other Takata airbags can have degraded propellant if exposed to high temperatures and humidity over time.

2001-07 Honda Accord, 2003-06 MDX recalled for Takata airbags

Honda has recalled 2001-07 Accord and 2003-06 MDX models fitted with like-for-like Takata airbag inflators between March 1, 2015 and December 31, 2017. As with all Takata-related recalls, a combination of heat and humidity can make the airbag inflator propellant degrade over time. If a car fitted with an affected airbag is involved in an accident, too much internal pressure can make its metal housing rupture, sending shrapnel into the cabin.

2009 Holden Astra Hatch, Wagon, VXR Takata recall expanded

Holden has expanded its Astra Takata recall, including 2009 three-door, five-door, Wagon, and HSV VXR models sold in Queensland, Northern Territory and Western Australia in the campaign announced last week. As with all Takata-related recalls, a combination of heat and humidity can make the airbag propellant degrade. If a car with a faulty inflator is involved in an accident, the metal inflator housing could rupture under too much pressure, sending metal fragments shooting into the cabin.

2014-16 Tesla Model S recalled for Takata airbags

Tesla has initiated its recall for the 2014-16 model-year Model S as part of the ongoing Takata airbag campaign. Like other Takata-related recalls, the fault revolves around airbags propellant that could degrade over time due to exposure to high temperatures and humidity. If the condition occurs and the vehicle is involved in an accident that triggers the airbag, the metal inflator housing could rupture, shooting metal fragments into the cabin.
