The recall is being overseen by the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) and will commence at the end of October.
The ACCC recall notice advising that certain affected vehicles may contain a potentially faulty secondary air pump relay.
What are the hazards?
If the relay is faulty, the secondary air pump is powered continuously and may overheat, posing a fire risk.
