Defective safety cushions at operation can put severe injuries to the driver and the passenger. The pyro installed inside explodes stronger, than it is provided by a design. Because of it steel fragments of the case scatter as if a shrapnel.

Exists several types of defective pillows, from them "type A" is most dangerous. The head of the Australian Federal chamber of automotive industry (FCAI) Tony Weber has told journalists that with these pillows the risk of explosion at operation can reach 50 percent.

according to the IsMyAirbagSafe.com.au service started this year in Australia still is a set of cars with pillows of "type A" - in the register 19,5 thousand defective pillows appear (from them 679 in the territory of South Australia). Not all cars from the list are still operated, but also there is a lot of it.

Most of owners of cars of the list was repeatedly informed by dealers. Now they will be notified once again by officials of the South Australian automobile register, having given them 30 days to provide documents on alteration. Owners of such cars have the right for free replacement of safety cushions at the dealer - and if it isn't made yet, they need to address dealers as soon as possible.

the North American plants of the Takata company have produced more than hundred million defective to a safety cushion. Since 2008 it is known of 14 cases in the USA and several in Asia when drivers of cars perished because of explosion of a safety cushion. After judicial proceedings the revocable campaign in which over thirty million cars participated has been announced worldwide. As a result of scandal Takata has gone bankrupt.

Cars with defective pillows of Takata were on sale worldwide: these are the separate models BMW, Honda, Ford, Toyota, Tesla - and even more than ten brands. On the website of the American agency NHTSA it is possible to check whether also your model enters this list - and if enters, then to carry out more exact inspection, having entered a VIN code of the car here.
