Live Linkicon

Toyota, a prominent automobile manufacturer in Bangladesh, has taken significant measures to address the critical issue of faulty airbags through a comprehensive awareness campaign. Collaborating with Antopolis, Toyota launched a dedicated website aimed at educating customers about the potential dangers associated with defective Takata airbags and encouraging them to prioritize immediate inspections. The campaign garnered exceptional success, leading to the replacement of a remarkable 1,000 faulty airbags, thereby safeguarding the well-being of numerous vehicle occupants.


The Takata Airbag Safety Recall remains an unprecedented event in the automotive industry, encompassing a staggering number of 19 automakers and tens of millions of airbags. The urgency to rectify this situation arises from the fact that these defective airbags pose a severe threat, capable of causing grave injuries or even fatalities if left unaddressed. Toyota, firmly committed to prioritizing customer safety, has taken a proactive stance by offering free replacement of the recalled airbags, coupled with a hassle-free repair experience.


The repair process, which Toyota wholeheartedly bears the cost of, ensures that the majority of vehicles can be fixed expeditiously within approximately one hour. 


In Bangladesh, Toyota vehicle owners manufactured between 2002 and 2017 face the possibility of their vehicles being subject to a Safety Recall for either the Takata Front Passenger Airbag Inflator or Takata Driver's Side Airbag Inflator. Acknowledging this potential risk, Toyota Bangladesh has initiated Safety Recalls specifically targeting certain Toyota vehicles.


Antopolis played a pivotal role in supporting Toyota's efforts by constructing an expansive and impactful awareness campaign website. This dedicated platform served as a vital resource, empowering Toyota to effectively communicate the critical importance of inspecting and replacing faulty airbags to its customer base. Through engaging content and clear messaging, the website successfully captured the attention and concern of Toyota owners, driving them to take prompt action. As a result, an impressive total of 1,000 faulty airbags were replaced, significantly mitigating potential risks and ensuring the safety of countless individuals on the roads of Bangladesh.


The collaboration between Toyota and Antopolis stands as a remarkable example of how strategic digital solutions and a well-executed awareness campaign can deliver exceptional results. By prioritizing customer safety, raising awareness, and facilitating swift actions, Toyota and Antopolis have made a lasting impact, not only in addressing the recall issue but also in establishing a precedent for proactive and customer-centric approaches within the automotive industry.
