According to the ACCC,

The fuel pump on affected vehicles may stop operating. If the fuel pump stops working, warning lights and messages may display on the instrument panel, and the engine may not run smoothly. This can result in the vehicle stalling and the vehicle may not be able to be restarted.

A loss of power while driving could increase the risk of an accident and injury or death of the vehicle occupants and other road users.”
