Car manufacturers have pleaded with vehicle passengers to check the airbag safety of vehicles with their mobile phones before they take a ride.

Why?  Because a quick check could save their lives.  Any vehicle fitted with an unrectified faulty Takata airbag could kill or seriously injure drivers and passengers.

The Federal Chamber of Automotive Industries (FCAI), the peak body for the automotive industry, has advised travellers they can easily use their phones to check the Takata Compulsory Recall status of any vehicle.

What about some HOT RACING DRIVERS. Gay? Or just plain GAYorgeous?

If the vehicle has an unrectified faulty Takata airbag – don’t drive it or ride in it!

Vehicle owners and passengers can check the recall status of vehicles by texting TAKATA to 0487 AIRBAG (247 224). They can also readily check vehicles on the automotive industry’s website www.ismyairbagsafe.com.au
