A significant number of New Zealand vehicles are part of the global recall of Takata airbags. The Transport Agency supports vehicle manufacturers in carrying out recalls, but given the high-profile nature of this recall, we have provided additional information for vehicle owners.
Manufacturers sometimes recall vehicles when defects in their design or production become evident.
Flood damaged, water damaged and written-off vehicles that have not been correctly repaired can compromise the safety of vehicle features. Check your vehicle against this list of vehicles that have come to our attention.
