Takata Airbag Update

No doubt you've seen and heard the concerns raised in the media regarding the Takata Airbag recall. Although only recently picked up by the media, this has been an ongoing issue and has been in the process of being remedied over the past couple of years.  

It is our understanding that any LeasePlan vehicles that have been affected by this recall, have already been recalled and repaired, but we wanted to make sure that you were in the loop with how this issue was being managed ongoing.  

At this stage the issue has only been found to occur in the hot and humid climates and includes the following vehicle ranges: Nissan, Toyota, Subaru, Honda, Mazda, Daihatsu, Mitsubishi, Isuzu, GM, Ford, Ferrari, Jeep.  

Drivers of these vehicles have been advised that their vehicles are safe to drive with no unreasonable risk and that if affected and in need of repair, they can expect to hear from their franchise dealer who will arrange for repairs at no cost.  

This being said, if you do have immediate concerns, then our advice is that you contact your franchise dealer or distributor directly.  

We will keep our ears to the ground on your behalf and will update you if any more information comes to hand.

Yours sincerely,

The LeasePlan Team
