Child restraint issue sees MG6 cars recalled

Total of just 57 MG cars involved in recall

Australian owners of some MG vehicles are being contacted after it was found their cars may not have a Child Restraint Anchorage point fitted as required by Australian design rules.

The recall is being overseen by the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) and involves MG6 vehicles manufactured in 2016.

The recall mirrors similar action involving the MG6 launched back in January 2015.

The latest recall notice advises that the rear centre seat position of the MG6 PLUS is not fitted with a Child Restraint Anchorage as required by Australian Design Rule 34/02.

What are the hazards?

Without appropriate Child Restraint Anchorage, the top tether of a child restraint cannot be attached, which may increase the risk of injury to an occupant in an accident.

What should MG6 owners do?

Owners of affected vehicles will be contacted directly by their MG dealer to arrange a complete replacement of the rear passenger seat backrest (60% portion) fitted with a middle top-tether child restraint anchorage point.

Further info is also available from MG Australia on 1800 MG CARS (642 277).
