ASCO Motors has advised its customers and members of the public who own certain Toyota models that they may be affected by the recent Takata Airbag Recall on steps they are required to take for remedial.

In a market announcement made through the South Pacific Stock Exchange (SPSE) yesterday, the company said the authorised Toyota distributor, Asco Motors, was committed to providing the necessary actions in order to limit any further confusion or uncertainty in this regard.

The company advised that the following Toyota models have been identified as affected by the recall, requiring faulty Takata airbags to be replaced:

The recall appeared in the international media recently and was reported locally, involving more than 100 million vehicles and nearly 20 automotive manufacturers around the world. It has become the largest automotive recall in history.

Asco Motors have requested owners of the listed models to immediately contact Asco Motors Customer Care Department and provide their contact details and Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) to determine if their vehicle is affected by the recall.

The company says the recall requires the replacement of defective Takata airbags in the passenger's front airbags and driver's front airbags.

The company added the replacement would take about one and half hours and would be done free of charge.
