Takata recall: Skoda and Jaguar Land Rover confirm affected models
Czech brand Skoda and British carmaker Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) have revealed which models will be recalled as part of the wide-spread mandatory Takata airbag call back that affects around 2.7 million cars on Australian roads.
Exactly 2657 examples of model year 2014-2015 Fabia light cars and 2262 units of the 2010 Yeti SUV are also in need of repair, as well as some versions of the 2016 Superb (2125), 2013 Rapid (1607), last year's Kodiaq seven-seat SUV (447) and just a single Roomster from 2013.
Concerned customers can find the list of affected vehicle identification numbers on Skoda Australia's website, which will be published shortly, or else they can call Skoda's customer experience contact centre.
All vehicles recalled by the aforementioned brands are not fitted with 'alpha' airbags that have a 50 per cent chance of shooting shrapnel into the cabin on deployment.
The announcement of the recalls come after the Australian government legislated a compulsory call back of all Takata-affected vehicles last week, with all repair work to be completed by the end of 2020.
