The vehicles affected may have been fitted with Takata gas generators which could allow the ingress of moisture and thus result in the degradation of the propellant.
If the airbag deploys, this could cause the gas generator to burst, causing metal parts to enter the vehicle’s interior, causing injuries to the occupants of the vehicle.
The Volkswagen Polo models affected by this recall were manufactured between October 2005 and August 2009.
