Potentially deadly Takata Airbag recall: Further 1.1 million cars added to list

A FURTHER 1.1 million cars fitted with potentially deadly Takata Airbags have been added to the ever-growing vehicle recall list.

The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission alerted motorists to the new ‘Future Recall’ list overnight.

Some of the new vehicles which are being recalled include the Audi A5, Mercedes-Benz C-Class, Koda Octavia, Ford Mondeo, Volkswagen Golf, Holden Cruze and Toyota Yaris.


The updated list brings the total number of recalled vehicles in Australia to a staggering four million.

Worldwide, there have been at least 23 deaths and over 230 serious injuries reported as associated with defective Takata airbags.

In Australia last year, a man was tragically killed and a woman was seriously injured.
