Nissan recalls one million cars due to faulty air bags. Reportedly the airbags may not trigger in an event of an accident. The faulty air bags system in the late models, the Altima and Sentra sedans reportedly have a glitch. The cars Nissan is recalling include; the Pathfinder, Sentra, Leaf, Nissan Altima, the 2013 Nissan NV200, 2014 Infiniti Q50, QX60, and Infiniti JX35.
This is Nissan’s second recall on their vehicles regarding their passenger air bags. Last year in April the company recalled 82,038 2013 models. The sensors were not properly manufactured and prevented the passenger’s air bag from working if needed.
Nissan Recalls One Million Cars Due To Faulty Air Bags
Nissan looked into the issue when complaints were made about a year ago. Thanks to documents filed with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, Nissan began investigating the problem and commenced with the recall. There were reports regarding accidents that proved the air bags were faulty but no deaths or injuries were caused.
Nissan’s investigation found that the air bags light was off during a crash. It also found that the vehicles’ sensors believed that there was no one in the seats when there was someone present. The problem has been traced back to the software in the cars and will be fixed for the owners free of charge.
