Takata airbag recall – Holden update

Holden confirms that approximately 333,000 vehicles in Australia are affected by the Takata airbag recall.

Holden advises that they are developing their plan in response to the recall as the recall notice calls for a progressive series of recalls, and their plan will reflect this. Holden has never had any Takata ‘alpha’ airbag inflators in our portfolio of vehicles.

Alpha airbags are a subset of Takata airbags that were installed in some vehicles supplied in Australia between 2001 and 2004. Alpha airbags have been identified as posing a significantly higher safety risk than other Takata inflators because they have been shown to rupture more frequently.

Holden will contact customers directly at an appropriate time if their car is being recalled. A list of GM vehicles sold in Australia impacted by the recall are:

  • Holden Astra-H (MY 2005 – 2009)
  • Opel Astra -J (MY2012 – 2013)
  • Holden Astra-J (MY2014 – 2017)
  • Holden Trax (MY2013 – 2018)
  • Holden Barina (MY2012 – 2018)
  • Holden Cruze (MY2010 – 2016)
  • Holden Cascada (MY2015 – 2017)
  • Opel Cascada (MY2014)
  • Opel Mokka (MY2014)
  • Opel Zafira (MY2013)
  • SAAB 9-3 (MY2006 – 2011)
  • SAAB 9-5 (MY2006 – 2011)

Importantly, Holden advises that no other Holden or GM cars are affected by the recall.
