Impacted vehicles were imported and distributed in Australia by Sime Darby Motors and Ateco between 2009 and 2016.

As these entities no longer represent Citroën or DS in Australia, any recall work and management of customer communications will be handled by current Citroën importer and distributor Citroën Australia and its dealers, who took over importation and distribution of the Citroën brand on 1 June, 2017.

On the advice of Groupe PSA, Citroën Australia can confirm that none of the recalled vehicles are fitted with Alpha airbags.

Recalls will formally commence in the coming weeks. Groupe PSA urges all customers who will receive a letter notifying them of the availability of replacement parts to contact its Australian Citroën distributor, Citroën Australia, as a matter of urgency to arrange a time for their airbag inflator to be replaced. All work will be carried out free of charge.

Customers can contact Citroën Australia’s Customer Relations Team at recall@citroen.com.au for further information.
