There’s no doubt the massive Takata airbag recall has been the biggest motoring story of the decade.

Just how big? Well, the latest numbers show more than 900,000 vehicles being driven by Australian motorists are involved.

The good news is the message checking whether your vehicle is involved in the recall is starting to get through – the Federal Chamber of Automotive Industries (FCAI) reports more than six million vehicle checks on the Takata Airbag recall website have now been completed.

That website is –

The FCAI has been spreading the message about the website via a high-profile advertising campaign that includes billboards, television and radio ads.

CEO of the FCAI, Tony Weber says there has been an excellent response so far from the Australian public with more than 32,000 vehicle checks being made every day.

But he says anyone who hasn’t yet checked to see if their vehicle is affected should do either via the website or by texting TAKATA to 0487 247 224.

All that’s required to check your vehicle is your rego number and state or territory.

And remember, if your vehicle is involved in the Takata Airbag Recall the repairs will be carried out free of charge.
