The campaign started on 20/2/2017.
The reason for the recall is the possibility of airbag inflator rupture due to excess inner pressure at the time of opening the passenger airbag, leading to burst of metallic fragments from the airbag on the driver’s side, thus the dealer will replace the inflator with an upgraded part.
The recalls confirm the efforts by Consumer Protection in traffic safety, and are consistent with its concern to carry our continuous revision for all the products in the Omani markets to provide the protection required for all the consumers.
