The propellant used in the Takata airbag inflator may experience a material alteration over time due to degradation occurring after prolonged exposure to high absolute humidity, high temperatures and high-temperature cycling.
In the event of an airbag being deployed, the excessive internal pressure may cause the inflator body to rupture and metal fragments may pass through the cushion material causing injury to the occupants.
The Volkswagen Up! models affected by this recall were manufactured between 1 August 2011 and 7 June 2012.
