Dealer fined $5,500 for faulty Takata airbag

The Department of Fair Trading is out and about fining dealers who sell vehicles under active recall for faulty Takata airbags without replacing them.

By law, you cannot sell a vehicle under active recall. PPSR reports are now updated to provide the Takata airbag recall status.

It is SO IMPORTANT TO READ this report carefully to avoid paying thousands of dollars in fines. Also, check this website to see if any vehicle you sell is affected by the recall.

A PPSR report purchased through EasyCars web ticks the Takata airbag recall status box in your DMS. This can also give you an idea of the status.
