In relation to recall announcements made by Honda Motor Company regarding the passenger airbag inflator on the Honda Accord, Proton is announcing a service fix to replace the passenger airbag inflator for all current generation Proton Perdana models.
This is a precautionary measure as the model is based on the Honda Accord and affects cars built from 2012 to the end of August 2018. A notice regarding this issue will be sent to all affected owners. The service fix is part of a global initiative for cars equipped with Takata airbags.
All action taken is in accordance with the latest Defect Information Report (DIR) issued by the National Highway Traffic and Safety Administration (NHTSA) of America that requires the replacement of non-desiccated passenger inflators.
A total of 6,432 units of the Proton Perdana are affected. It's important to note that the recall does not affect any other Proton models as the airbags used are supplied by a different vendor. Stringent controls are in place to ensure customer safety, and while it may be an inconvenience it is a highly important recall as there is risk of fatality.
Customers are advised to call Proton’s Customer Care Hotline, 1-800-888-398 or email to firstname.lastname@example.org for any enquiries and assistance.
