Notify The Government of a Suspected Safety Defect Hi Guys,
I just came across an official website of the Australian Government HERE where it gives the opportunity to vehicle owners to report a suspected safety related manufacturing defects, if the car manufacturer is refusing to address them.
Please note that this is NOT a consumer affairs avenue for you to complain about warranty repairs and the like, but is it indeed useful to report safety related defect which car manufacturers are refusing to acknowledge.
For example: The T30 loose intake butterfly screws issue which we have discussed on the forum can certainly be classed as a safety related defect if these screws come loose in a remote area of the country, leaving you stranded in the middle of nowhere. This issue should be reported to the government using the above website.
Another example could be related to airbags not deploying correctly at the time of an accident....etc.
