National World compulsory car recall to hit Australia. SOME four million cars on Australian roads are set to be part of a compulsory recall to protect drivers from exploding airbags. The Turnbull government looks to protect drivers from a global issue of exploding airbags. The federal government has announced it will require the recall of 2.3 million cars with the defective Takata airbags, which have caused dozens of deaths worldwide, including one death in Australia and another severe injury. It may be Australia’s largest ever consumer recall, and comes after a voluntary recall late last year that saw 1.7 million cars affected. Drivers are strongly urged to check whether their motor vehicle has been recalled to replace faulty Takata airbags. Manufacturers Ford, Toyota, Subaru, Mitsubishi, Nissan and BMW among others, will be forced to replace the airbags for free and as soon as possible. More than 100 million cars worldwide have been caught up in the safety issue. This morning, the Assistant Minister to the Treasurer Michael Sukkar released the exact years and models of the cars impacted. Among those to be recalled include a large number of car makes and models as well as a small number of motorcycles.
