NADI 5-AT recall
WHAT IS THE RISK?
If the vehicle is involved in a collision, the airbag inflator could rupture, causing sharp metal fragments to enter the vehicle cabin at high speed and kill or seriously injure people in the vehicle. There is also a potential risk that the airbag may underinflate in a collision and may not provide the expected level of protection for the driver.
The front driver’s airbag inflator could allow moisture to enter the unit and degrade the airbag propellant. If this occurs, the performance of the propellant may be altered, and therefore not react as designed during an accident, causing incorrect deployment of the airbag.
MMAL have written to the last known owner, advising them of the potential issue. However, you can also check whether your vehicle is affected and contact us to take action:
