We’re committed to ensuring that Land Rover owners have quick and easy access to the right information regarding the Takata Airbag Recall. As always, our customer’s safety is our priority.

Please click here to enter your VIN and search for the Takata recall status on your vehicle.

On 1st March 2018, the Australian Government initiated a mandatory recall of certain vehicles with Takata airbags. As the airbag ages and is exposed to high temperatures and humidity, the PSAN propellant is exposed to moisture and degrades. If this happens, when the airbag is triggered and deploys (in a collision), it may deploy with too much explosive force, rupturing the airbag inflator housing so that sharp metal fragments shoot out and hit vehicle occupants, potentially injuring or killing them.

A subset of Takata airbags called ‘alpha’ are considered to pose the highest safety risk of all the recalled Takata airbags. There are no Land Rover vehicles that contain 'alpha' airbags.

However, certain Land Rover models from 2007 - 2017 contain non-alpha Takata airbag inflators that are required to be recalled under the compulsory notice. According to the ACCC, there is no immediate known risk with the non-alpha airbags in vehicles less than 6 years old, but there will be in the future. Where an affected vehicle is more than 6 years old, the ACCC has stated that there is a risk of injury or death in the event of rupture of the airbag inflator.

The recall and replacement timetable for the Compulsory Recall requires vehicles with faulty Takata airbags to be recalled and the airbag inflators removed and replaced as soon as practicable.

Recalls are/were initiated on a rolling basis to allow replacements to be prioritised according to priority safety factors, including climate at the location of the vehicle, the age of the vehicle and whether the airbag is a driver or passenger side airbag (driver is prioritised due to higher risk). Consumers should not experience significant delays once they are notified of the recall and asked to schedule a replacement.

For more information on future recall initiation dates please see the Recall Initiation Schedule at the bottom of this page for future recalls. All recalls which are already active are listed here. Alternatively, you can enter your VIN in the Recall Database to check whether your vehicle is under active recall (recalled in the past or now) or future recall (and if so the scheduled time for recall and replacement).

Vehicles that have had a frontal airbag replaced following a collision or other incident may have been fitted with a faulty airbag and could require replacement. Contact a Retailer to arrange an inspection of the airbag.

Land Rover Australia are committed to addressing the needs and concerns of our customers affected by this industry-wide issue. If you are located more than 250 kilometres from your nearest Retailer Land Rover will make arrangements to collet your vehicle and return it to you to enable you to have the Recall completed with the minimal inconvenience.

Important note on imagery & specification. We are living through exceptional times. Due to the Covid pandemic we have been prevented or delayed in the creation of new images of current model years. Now the global impact of micro-chip shortages is further affecting build specifications, options and launch timings. Until this unique event settles, please note that many images cannot be updated to 22 model year specifications. Features, options, trim and colour schemes will differ from many images. Customers are urged to consult your local Retailer for detailed 22 model year specifications and do not base an order on marketing imagery and specification alone.

Jaguar Land Rover Limited is constantly seeking ways to improve the specification, design and production of its vehicles, parts and accessories and alterations take place continually, and we reserve the right to change without notice. Some features may vary between optional and standard for different model years. The information, specification, engines and colours on this website are based on European specification and may vary from market to market and are subject to change without notice. Some vehicles are shown with optional equipment and retailer-fit accessories that may not be available in all markets. Please contact your local retailer for local availability and prices.

‡‡Price shown is the manufacturers recommended drive-away prices (MRDP) which applies to the vehicle model and optional features selected in the vehicle configurator and as described in the configuration summary. The MRDP is an estimated price which includes the manufacturer's recommended list price, any associated registration fees, applicable taxes (including GST), levies and CTP insurances at the time of publishing in accordance with the applicable state / territory legislation where the Retailer is located for a 12 month period. The MRDP may vary as a result of differences in price components such as location, stamp duty or registration fees. CTP rate is based on a private owner aged 40 with 0 demerit points, no accidents or driving convictions and the vehicle being garaged in the postcode entered. Some information presented or used in the MRDP calculation is sourced from third parties. Jaguar Land Rover Australia has made every effort to ensure accuracy, however please contact your preferred Jaguar Land Rover Retailer to confirm your actual drive-away price which may vary according to your individual circumstances, including any trade-in value agreed between you and the Retailer. Excludes fleet, government, rental buyers, hire car and chauffeur companies.
