2016 Holden VF Commodore and Caprice recalled for airbag issue
Five days worth of 2016 Holden VF Commodore and Caprice production is being recalled due to issues with airbag deployment.
HOLDEN IS RECALLING five days worth of 2016 Holden VF Commodore and Caprice production, 8 October – 13 October with the affected VIN range: 6G1FA8E57GL202543 to 6G1NP5EW6GL204169. The reason being the printed circuit board controlling the Airbag Control Module might not have been secured correctly.
“The Printed Circuit Board (PCB) may not have been secured properly into the casing of the Airbag Control Module, also known as the Sensing & Diagnostics Module (SDM),” Holden said.
“In certain conditions, the defect may result in slightly delayed deployment of the side thorax and side curtain airbags. There is also potential for unintended airbag deployment to occur. These hazards may pose a risk of increased injury to a vehicle occupant.”
Holden said it will write to all owners and tell them what is required, but if you haven’t heard soon you could always show some initiative and check the VIN number of your car yourself to see if it falls within the VIN range.
