Identifying features

VIN (Vehicle identification number)
See attached VIN list

What are the defects?

Airbag inflator: As it gets older, a combination of high temperatures and humidity can cause the airbag inflator propellant to degrade. If an affected vehicle is involved in a collision triggering the airbag, the metal inflator housing may explode/rupture under too much internal pressure.

What are the hazards?

In the event that a defective airbag inflator ruptures, metal fragments may propel out through the airbag cushion towards the vehicle occupants causing serious injury or fatality.

What should consumers do?

Owners of affected vehicles should contact their local Hino dealership directly via https://www.hino.com.au/dealer/ to arrange for a replacement airbag inflator free of charge.

Consumers who are unsure whether they are affected can also contact Hino on 1300 014 466.
