The recall notice advises that the passenger’s front airbag propellant wafers may have an increased potential for moisture intrusion over time.

Moisture intrusion could potentially make the inflator assembly more susceptible to rupture during airbag deployment.

What are the hazards?

The ruptured inflator may create metallic fragments that could contact an occupant, increasing the risk of injury.

Known owners will be contacted by mail by Subaru Australia.

Once parts become available those owners will be asked to present their vehicle to their preferred Subaru retailer for the replacement of passenger’s front airbag inflator at no charge.
