Edaran Tan Chong Motor Sdn Bhd (ETCM), together with Tan Chong Ekspres Auto Servis Centre (TCEAS) today announced an additional recall campaign extension for its customers to replace the Driver and Front Passenger Takata Airbag Inflator module.
Approximately 11,971 units of Nissan vehicles in Malaysia have been identified to be affected in the Takata airbag inflator recall campaign as stated below:
The Nissan NP300 Navara which was launched in Malaysia on November 2015, as well as others current selling Nissan models are not affected.
Customers of the affected Nissan vehicles will be notified directly by letter through TCEAS, and are advised to call the nearest TCEAS outlet for an appointment.
Selected TCEAS outlets have extended operation hours and are open 365 days a year, making it easier for customers to service their vehicles on weekends and public holidays, as well as to alleviate capacity surge during this recall campaign.
As of June 2019, TCEAS has completed 99,670 vehicles or 56% of Takata airbag inflator replacements but many affected vehicles are yet to get their inflators replaced.
ETCM and TCEAS are also urging Nissan owners who have yet to undertake the replacement activity to urgently replace their affected Takata airbag inflator at the nearest TCEAS outlet to avoid any injury and fatality. As vehicle ownership may have changed over the years, current owners of these models are reminded to find out if their Nissan vehicle is involved in the recall campaign.
Customers may call Nissan Customer Care Centre toll-free line at 1800-88-3838 for further clarification or visit www.nissan.com.my (click on ‘Owners’ tab followed by ‘Recall Campaign’) to find out if their Nissan vehicle is involved in this recall campaign. All labour and replacement parts for this service campaign will be at no cost to owners.
Additionally, ETCM is also providing Takata Airbag Inflators Replacement for affected Nissan vehicles during Nissan Test Drive Carnival over 2 weekends of 17th to 18th August, and 24th to 25th August respectively at selected ETCM showrooms across the nation.
