STOP DRIVING IMMEDIATELY: Australian car owners in danger!


The Federal Chamber of Automotive Industries (FCAI) has issued yet another Takata airbag "stop drive" warning, breaking down state-by-state how many vehicles it knows are on still the road with potentially fatal Takata airbags.

The FCAI says there are still hundreds of vehicles on Australia’s roads with the deadly Alpha airbag fitted.

“These are the worst of the worst” the Chamber’s chief executive, Tony Webber said. “They are high-risk and can kill vehicle drivers and occupants, any vehicle with critical Alpha or critical non-Alpha type airbags should not be driven at all.”

The most popular models with potentially deadly airbags fitted include the first-generation Toyota RAV4 (1997-1999), Honda Accord and CR-V (1998-2000), Mitsubishi Lancer, Mirage, and Pajero (1997-2000), and all variants of the E46 BMW 3 Series (1997-2000).
