Exclamation Takata air bag recall

Some Subaru models included.

Please check here about all your vehicles here (as at 30 October 2015):

http://www.safercar.gov/rs/takata/takatalist.html

Subie models included so far:

Subaru:
2003-2005 Baja
2004-2005 Impreza
2003-2005 Legacy
2003-2005 Outback

These are the USA models. We need to find out about other country models. These things are extremely dangerous. Takata have been fined US$200M for compliance failure ...

Having trouble decoding the Aussie airbag recalls, is there a list like with the USDM in the 1st post?
