To be precise, a total of 53,918 Pajero falls under the category of cars carrying the defected airbag. Under a statement issued Al Habtoor Motors the airbag problem has been explained in detail. Here, quoting the reason mentioned in the apology statement, “Due to usage condition, the changes of temperature and longtime humidity, the propellant (ammonium nitrate) in the inflator for passenger side frontal airbag may be deteriorated and, as a result, the inflator body may rupture at the time of airbag deployment. Therefore the frontal airbag inflator for passenger side has to be changed.’

Customers whose cars fall under the defected airbag lot can bring their vehicle for repair at the Al Habtoor Motors. The said dealership remains open from 8 am to 8 pm, Saturday to Thursday. In case of any query or confusion, customers can contact the dealership via mail or visit crm@habtoormotors.com for more information.
