Proton_Perdana_Accord_ 003

Proton has stated that its Accord-based Perdana, previously produced for Government usage, is not affected by the ongoing Takata airbag recall in the country.

The previous Perdana was a rebadged version of the eighth-generation Accord. However, production of said Perdana only started towards the end of 2013. The recall programme issued by Honda Malaysia lists the 2003-2011 model year Accord as being affected, and thus, is not applicable to the previous Perdana.

The same can be said of the current 2016 Perdana, which was recently launched not too long ago. According to Proton, the national carmaker has conducted all the necessary crash testing to ensure that there are no issues with the vehicle’s airbags.

We would like to remind all vehicles owners to please check if your vehicle is among those affected by the Takata airbag recall. We’ve prepared a post for you to find out all you need to know about recall programmes issued by carmakers here.
