The call is due to a fault in the air blower manufactured by the company Takata on the driver's side, which was manufactured incorrectly and leads to a potential risk in the internal pressure of those pumps, which increases abnormally during the opening of the airbag. When the blower opens during the collision, some of the metal shrapnel will fly into the cabin causing the injury or death of the passengers. The company will replace the driver's air blower with modified parts for all the damaged vehicles.
These recalls emphasize the efforts of the Authority in the field of traffic safety in cooperation with the organizations operating in the field, and in line with its continuous concern to conduct continuous reviews of all the products offered in the Sultanate's markets, in order to provide the necessary protection for consumers in all fields.
