The recall is due to the fact that the driver's airbags in the affected vehicles are equipped with non-dehydrated ammonium nitrate air pumps. These certain weather conditions can over time cause a chemical change to the fuel in the airbags' air pumps and in the event of an accident and the front passenger airbags ejecting. This change may cause a rupture of the airbag pump and the possibility of parts of it entering the passenger compartment which may lead to a high risk of injury. Accordingly, the company will change the airbag.

 

These recalls confirm the efforts made by the authority in the field of traffic safety in cooperation with car agencies to preserve the lives and safety of consumers and to provide the necessary protection for them in line with its continuous keenness to conduct continuous reviews of all products offered in the Sultanate’s markets.
