- The Land Transport Authority (LTA) has been working closely with motor dealers and vehicle manufacturers to facilitate the recall of vehicles affected by defective Takata airbags. Since the recalls were first initiated in Singapore in 2013, there have been a total of 43 recall exercises, involving eight vehicle makes and about 130,000 airbag inflators. Vehicles that are most at risk are prioritised for recall.
- To date, 88% of the airbag inflators whose recalls were initiated before 2015 have been rectified. For recalls initiated from 2015 onwards, 32% have been rectified.
- Motor dealers and parallel importers who have sold vehicles affected by any safety-related vehicle recall must notify LTA and affected vehicle owners, make the necessary arrangements to rectify the defects and update LTA on the progress of the rectification works. LTA will continue to monitor the situation closely. Please refer to Annex A for the list of vehicle models affected by the recall.
How Do I Know if I Am Affected?
- Vehicle owners who have received recall notifications from the respective motor dealers should contact their motor dealer, who will advise on the timeframe for rectification as well as the interim precautionary measures that should be taken.
- Vehicle owners may also log in to the Electronic Vehicle Recall System (EVRS) in the OneMotoring portal or contact the respective motor dealers to check if their vehicle is affected by any recall.
