JPJ will take action against those ignoring reminders to replace Takata airbags


Fresh off the oven from the Ministry of Transport is an announcement whereby a RM 300 summon will be issued to those who continue to ignore reminders to replace their affected airbag inflators.

Minister of Transport, Anthony Loke, has stated that representatives from the affected car brands will meet with JPJ officers to better consolidate all the owners data, as one of the issues have been a lack of attention brought to the 2nd or even 3rd hand owners of the affected vehicles.

Those who have yet to undergo replacements of the airbag inflator will be reported to JPJ. From there, reminders will be sent to the owners  to make the replacements within 14 days.

For those who still persist to not undergo the replacement, a second reminder will be sent out, with the co-operation of insurance companies to ensure that these reminders are sent to the most updated addresses – no excuses from now on.

This stubbornness will also be punished with owners being unable to renew their affected vehicle’s road tax.

If you are still unsure whether your car(s) are involved in this Takata airbag recall campaign, log on to these online VIN checkers provided by the affected manufacturers and follow the instructions provided:
