Thousands of Australians are driving cars that could prove to be time-bombs.

More than 1 million Australian drivers are at risk of exploding “grenade” airbags that killed a man in Sydney.

Police said a 58-year-old driver died when the airbag of his Honda CR-V ruptured following a crash in Cabramatta on July 13. Investigators said he was “struck in the neck by a small fragment” when the safety device deployed.

The car in question was fitted with faulty airbag inflators that can become damaged by moisture, causing chemical propellant to explode in an uncontrolled fashion when triggered by a crash
