    Takata Airbag Recall

    HOLDEN has confirmed it will recall approximately 333,000 vehicles in Australia affected by the Takata airbag recall — including popular models such as the Barina, Astra and Cruze hatchbacks.
    The list of Holden cars stretches from 2005 to today, but does not include every Holden sold locally.
    Some of the cars being recalled by Holden are models with other General Motors badges, such as Opel and Saab, which are no longer sold in Australia.

    The list of affected cars includes:
    • Holden Astra (MY2005 — 2009)
    • Opel Astra (MY2012 — 2013)
    • Holden Astra (MY2014 — 2017)
    • Holden Trax (MY2013 — 2018)
    • Holden Barina (MY2012 — 2018)
    • Holden Cruze (MY2010 — 2016)
    • Holden Cascada (MY2015 — 2017)
    • Opel Cascada (MY2014)
    • Opel Mokka (MY2014)
    • Opel Zafira (MY2013)
    • SAAB 9-3 (MY2006 — 2011)
    • SAAB 9-5 (MY2006 — 2011)

    Yeah, been following this as well.

    At least Holden is saying that they are not fitted with the ‘alpha’ variant which is the seriously dangerous one.

    I would ask my local Holden dealer but I don't really trust them.

    I think you'd have to because Holden is going to contact the owners for the revall and those who bought their car second hand might not be in Holden's database.

    I just got a letter off Holden offering me a discount on my next service after the last fiasco..So I must be in their database.
    But I will go and annoy them Monday anyway.
