Bermaz Auto Alliance Sdn Bhd (BAASB), the authorized repairer of Citroen/DS vehicles in Malaysia has issued a recall and a “Stop Drive Statement” for Citroen/DS vehicles in regard to the faulty Takata airbags. The vehicles affected by the recall are the following models produced between 2009 and 2017:
- Citroen C3
- Citroen C4
The recall campaign has been in effect since 2020 in multiple phases around the world. Owners and/or custodians of these vehicles have been repeatedly contacted and urged to seek the required repair immediately.
The involved vehicles are equipped with Takata airbag inflators whose chemical properties may deteriorate over time, particularly when exposed to hot, humid climate conditions. Such conditions may cause the inflators to rupture on deployment, scattering debris capable of causing serious injury or death.
Fatality cases have been confirmed due to this issue, so immediate action from owners and/or custodians of C3/C4/DS3/DS4/DS5 produced from 2009 to 2017 is required.
Regarding the airbag recall, Citroen and DS urge owners and custodians of the involved vehicles to stop driving their cars immediately and contact the appointed Authorised Repairer in Malaysia – Bermaz Auto Alliance Sdn Bhd, to obtain the required repair free of charge (FOC). The affected customers will be provided with a courtesy car.
