These Takata NADI (non-azide driver inflator) type 5-AT airbags are not captured under the existing compulsory recall of Takata airbags.
These NADI airbags were installed in about 78,000 Australian vehicles, manufactured between 1996 and 2000 across eight manufacturers. A substantial number of these cars are likely to be still registered and on the road.
The successor company to Takata, Joyson Safety Systems (JSS), has confirmed the safety risk in certain NADI 5-AT inflators supplied globally.
An equipment defect report was submitted to the US National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) on 3 December 2019, and recalls of affected vehicles are commencing in the US.
