"We're seeking information from the Department of Infrastructure and Regional Development as to exactly what information it is requiring vehicle manufacturers and retailers to give consumers about their car's airbag, including the likelihood of the airbag being replaced again", Sims said.
Takata's defect-prone airbag inflators have been observed to degrade over time and possibly rupture in the event of a crash, sending harmful debris through the cabin.
The replacement was treated with a water-absorbing chemical created to address the problem, but it was subsequently found that they too may also degrade over time.
"This action provided safety for a number of years, however due to exposure to the environment over time, these airbags will need to be replaced again", she said.
Fourteen brands have been impacted in Australia alone, with 2.3 million vehicles affected locally.
Over 100 million vehicles, 70 million the United States alone, fitted with Takata airbags have been recalled since 2004, when reports of an issue first arose.
A competition watchdog investigation was launched after consumer group Choice warned some vehicle companies were replacing faulty Takata airbags with the same potentially-deadly devices. It is the biggest safety recall in automotive history.

Minister for Urban Infrastructure Paul Fletcher has written to all vehicle manufacturers demanding a status update on their recall program and their contact with affected owners.
Tom Godfrey, a spokesman for consumer advocate Choice, says auto companies are clearly "under pressure".
The news of Ford's petition comes as new testing suggests that some drivers side airbag inflators in 2012-2015 Ford, Mazda, and Nissan vehicles should be regarded as defective. The problem with Takata's airbags is rooted in their inflators, many of which use ammonium nitrate to deploy the bags.
But Choice said the policy left people "driving ticking time-bombs".
However, the consumer group added there were as many as 14 vehicle manufacturers still fitting faulty airbags, but a lot of them had not come forward yet.
The ACCC then makes note of CHOICE's findings, stating: "Some cars have already had their airbag replaced with one treated with a water-absorbing chemical created to address the problem, but these may also degrade over time".
Choice says some manufacturers installed new iterations of the recalled airbags as a temporary fix and when the company checked recently, BMW, Toyota, Lexus, Mazda and Subaru confirmed they made identical replacements, which means the cars will need to be recalled again.
"While estimates of how long the dodgy Takata airbags take to break down vary, it's deeply concerning to think these bombs-in-a-bag lie in wait in many popular cars poised to explode their deadly shrapnel into unsuspecting victims".
