SUBJECT: Takata Front Passenger Airbag Module/ lnflator “Like for Like” Recall

 

SUBARU OF AMERICA, INC. has determined that a defect, which relates to motor vehicle safety, exists in certain 2003-2014 model year Legacy and Outback vehicles, 2003-2006 model year Baja vehicles, 2009-2013 model year Forester vehicles, 2004-2011 model year Impreza vehicles, and 2004- 2014 WRX (including STI) vehicles equipped with a non-desiccated Takata-sourced passenger-side frontal air bag containing the propellant Phase Stabilized Ammonium Nitrate (PSAN).

As previously communicated, this phase of the Takata airbag recall includes vehicles which had an interim repair performed under previous Takata airbag recalls.

Interim repairs, also referred to as “like-for-like” repairs, involved the installation of a non-desiccated PSAN Takata-sourced inflator, prior to the availability of final repair parts which do not contain PSAN. The vehicles included in this recall were identified from recall claim data indicating that a “like-for-like” Takata-sourced non-desiccated PSAN inflator may have been installed.

 

DESCRIPTION OF THE SAFETY DEFECT AND SAFETY HAZARD

Despite the previous recall repair for a “like-for- ike” air bag inflator replacement, vehicles containing a Takata-sourced passenger-side frontal air bag inflator remain susceptible to propellant degradation occurring after long-term exposure to high absolute humidity, temperature and temperature cycling. Over time, this could cause the inflator within the air bag to explode when the passenger’s frontal air bag deploys in a crash.

If the air bag inflator explodes, sharp metal fragments could strike vehicle occupants, potentially resulting in serious injury or death.

 

BACKGROUND

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has prioritized the recalls of all non­ desiccated Takata-sourced passenger side Takata airbag inflators based on the risk of injury or death to vehicle occupants.

The combination of time, high temperature fluctuations , and humidity contribute to the degradation of the propellant in the inflators. Therefore, NHTSA prioritized the Takata recalls by age and location history of the vehicles. To do so, NHTSA has established three geographical Zones – A, B, and C – based on the level of heat and humidity as listed below:

Zone A: Hot and Humid

Alabama, California, Florida, Georgia, Hawaii, Louisiana , Mississippi, South Carolina, Texas, Puerto Rico, American Samoa, Guam, the Northern Mariana Islands (Saipan), and the U.S. Virgin Islands.

Zone B: Less Hot and Humid

Arizona, Arkansas, Delaware, District of Columbia, Illinois, Indiana , Kansas, Kentucky, Maryland , Missouri, Nebraska, Nevada, New Jersey, New Mexico, North Carolina, Ohio, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania , Tennessee, Virginia, and West Virginia.

Zone C: Least Hot and Humid

Alaska, Colorado, Connecticut, Idaho, Iowa, Maine, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Montana, New Hampshire, New York, North Dakota, Oregon, Rhode Island, South Dakota, Utah, Vermont, Washington, Wisconsin, and Wyoming.

 

AFFECTED VEHICLES

This phase of the Takata recall includes vehicles which may have had an interim (” like- for-like”) repair performed under a previous airbag recall, to reduce the risk of injury before final remedy parts were available:

  • Previously repaired Zone A vehicles will be included in recall code TKA-20
  • Previously repaired Zone B vehicles will be included in recall code TKB-20
  • Previously repaired Zone C vehicles will be included in recall code TKC-20
If the previous recall claim data is unclear as to whether a PSAN “like-for-like” inflater was installed or not, the vehicle has been included in this phase of the Takata airbag recall out of an abundance of caution.

 

Examples of unclear retailer claim data are listed below:

  • Missing installed inflator /module serial numbers
  • Installed inflator /module serial numbers that do not correspond with the part number claimed
  • Returned part information that indicates that a PSAN unit may have been installed

Retailer affected vehicle counts by model year/carline were distributed to all Regional/Distributor offices in December to assist with capacity planning purposes. Lists of the affected VINs will be distributed when owner notification begins.

The status of TKA20, TKB20, and TKC20 coverage will display as “Open – Pending Phased Mailing” until all official owner notification letters have been released. This status is not intended to discourage retailers from scheduling these repairs and will not affect the retailers’ ability to file a claim for repairs performed prior to the official owner notification.

 

REPAIR

The repair procedures for this recall include a required inspection prior to replacement, to confirm whether a PSAN “like-for-like ” inflator was previously installed or not.

  • If inspection confirms the affected vehicle DOES contain a previously-installed PSAN ” like-for­ like” air bag inflator, it will be replaced with a final remedy non-Takata sourced inflator /module.
  • If inspection confirms the vehicle DOES NOT contain a previously-installed PSAN ” lik e-for­ like ” inflator , Subaru will reimburse retailers for the required inspection procedure.

 

OWNER NOTIFICATION

Owner notification will begin January 7, 2020 and will be phased in weekly mail drops through the end of February. Listed below is the current mailing plan, based on the model year (MY) of the affected vehicles:

  • January 7: affected 2003-2004 MY vehicles
  • January 16: affected 2005 MY vehicles
  • January 23: affected 2006-2007 MY vehicles
  • January 30: affected 2008 MY vehicles
  • February 6: affected 2009 MY vehicles
  • February 13: affected 2010 MY vehicles
  • February 20: affected 2011 MY vehicles
  • February 27: affected 2012-2014 MY vehicles

As a reminder, if a customer requests a loaner car, retailers should make every effort to comply with that request and follow normal warranty procedures to obtain reimbursement for the loaner car. See Section 8.4.7 (Alternate Transportation Program) of the Claims Policies and Procedures Manual on subarunet.com under ‘Claims & Warranty Administration’ for details.

 

RETAILER VIN ASSIGNMENT

Each Subaru retailer will receive an affected VIN list from their Zone office when owner notification begins. Vehicles will be assigned to retailers in the affected VIN list as follows. Please note that this logic has recently changed:

  1. If there is a preferred retailer on file, the VIN will be assigned to the preferred retailer.
  2. If there is no preferred retailer on file:
    1. Original vehicle owners are assigned to the original selling retailer if their current DMV registration address is within a 50-mile radius of that retailer.
    2. If the original selling retailer is inactive, the VIN is assigned to the nearest active retailer.
    3. If the owner is not the original owner, the VIN is assigned to the nearest active retailer.

 

RETAILER PROGRAM RESPONSIBILITY

Any vehicles listed in a recall/campaign that are in retailer stock must be:

  • Immediately identified.
  • Tagged or otherwise marked to prevent their delivery or use prior to inspection and/or repair.
  • Repaired in accordance with the repair procedures outlined in this Product Campaign Bulletin.

Retailers are to promptly perform the applicable service procedures to correct all affected vehicles in their inventory (used, demo & SSLP).

Additionally, whenever a vehicle subject to this recall is taken into retailer invento ry, or in for service, necessary steps should be taken to ensure the recall correction has been made before selling or releasing the vehicle, provided that parts are available to complete this recall.

1 Associated Investigation

Air Bag Inflator Rupture
NHTSA ID: EA15001
Dated opened: February 24, 2015

The Office of Defects Investigation (ODI) opened PE14-016 in June 2014 based on six inflator rupture incidents involving consumer owned vehicles produced by five vehicle manufacturers. All six vehicles were operated in Florida or Puerto Rico at the time of the rupture and for the majority of their service life, and were equipped with inflators produced by Takata, a tier-one supplier of automotive air bag systems.

During the course of PE14-016, ODI determined that five additional vehicle manufacturers used inflators of a similar design and vintage also supplied by Takata. No evidence of field failures was found in vehicles produced by these five additional manufacturers. Nonetheless, at ODI’s insistence, all 10 vehicle manufacturers initiated a regional recall within approximately two weeks of the opening of the investigation. The regions recalled initially included Florida, Puerto Rico, Hawaii, and the U.S. Virgin Islands, areas with high absolute humidity and climatic conditions believed to be a significant factor in the inflator ruptures. As part of the recall actions, inflators removed from remedied vehicles are to be returned to Takata for testing.

Takata’s initial test results on passenger inflators from remedied vehicles indicated a much higher than anticipated rupture frequency for inflators returned from Florida. Accordingly ODI requested all 10 manufacturers expand the regional recalls for passenger inflators to include other geographic areas where high absolute humidity conditions exist, including the Gulf States and other coastal areas. Takata’s testing of the passenger inflators to date continues to indicate this geographic area as having the highest risk, with no ruptures occurring from inflators returned from outside the expanded recall regions. During PE14-016 four additional passenger inflator field events occurred, all in vehicles from the same expanded geographic region.

Also during PE14-016 four additional driver inflator field events occurred including two in vehicles from regions not known for high absolute humidity, specifically California and North Carolina. Accordingly, ODI requested all five of the affected vehicle manufacturers currently using the subject Takata driver inflators expand to nationwide recalls. Significantly, neither of the affected vehicle manufacturers or Takata provided any explanation to account for these two driver air bag inflator ruptures outside the area of high absolute humidity. Takata testing of returned driver inflators indicates a lower rupture frequency as compared to passenger inflator testing. All test ruptures reported by Takata to date have occurred on inflators returned from high absolute humidity areas.

The investigation now includes all manufacturers and vehicles known to be affected at this time. ODI’s investigation will focus on, among other things, root cause analysis, other potential defect consequences, identification of affected vehicles scope, and adequacy of the remedy.

The five ODI reports cited above can be reviewed online at https://www-odi.nhtsa.dot.gov/owners/SearchNHTSAID under the following identification numbers: 10537899, 10568848, 10585224, 10605877, 10651492
