Takata airbag recall.
Takata Airbag Safety Recall
Owners can be assured that no Volkswagen vehicle is fitted with an airbag from the alpha population.
For vehicles fitted with a frontal Takata airbag which are less than 6 years old, the ACCC and the Australian Government have stated that there is NO IMMEDIATE KNOWN RISK WITH THE AIRBAG, BUT THERE WILL BE IN THE FUTURE.
For vehicles fitted with a frontal Takata airbag more than 6 years old, the ACCC and the Australian Government have stated that there is a RISK OF INJURY OR DEATH in the event of rupture of the airbag inflator.
Please also note that if your vehicle has previously been involved in a collision or other incident, it may have had an affected frontal Takata airbag inflator installed following that collision or other incident. It is therefore important that you contact an authorised Volkswagen Dealer to arrange for the airbag to be checked and (if necessary) replaced.
