The government website with data on every make and model affected by a massive faulty airbag recall has crashed due to intense online traffic.
However, the website has been down since last night and it's due to the number of car owners overwhelming the system.
Crawford said it was important to note that there had been no deaths or injuries related to the airbags in New Zealand or Australia.
The NZ Transport Agency says faulty airbags have been found in vehicles in the Honda, Nissan, Mazda, Subaru, Isuzu, GM, Ford, Toyota, Ferrari, Chrysler, Mitsubishi and Daihatsu ranges.
The 300,000 vehicles being recalled in New Zealand are made up of both new and imported vehicles aged up to 13 years old.
