Vehicle dealerships are open for urgent Takata airbag repairs


While the numbers of car trips have decrease significantly, we still need to make sure our vehicles are maintained is a safe condition in case we have to travel for essential services.  David Brown tells us how.

Many car dealerships are remaining open especially for service work.

This is most important if you still need to have Takata airbags replaced.

A faulty Takata airbag has the potential to seriously injure, or even kill, vehicle drivers and passengers.

The Federal Chamber of Automotive Industries says that you can find out if your car needs replacement airbags by going to the web site and all you have to enter in is your number plate and the state or territory it is registered in.

If your local dealer is not opened for this or any other service requirement you should contact the manufacturer who will help you find a location.
