Accord-Based Proton Perdanas Built Before September 2018 Need to Get Takata Inflators Replaced
In relation to recall announcements made by Honda Motor Company regarding the passenger airbag inflator on the Honda Accord, PROTON would like to announce 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.
The Company would like to reassure all customers the exercise 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, which is a key priority for PROTON and any inconvenience caused is deeply regrettable.
Customers are advised to call PROTON’s Customer Care Hotline, 1-800-888-398 or email to [email protected] for any enquiries and assistance.
PROTON would like to express its sincere appreciation and thanks to all its customers for their support and assures them efforts are underway to ensure the service fix is completed as soon as possible.
