If you own a Nissan, you should know that the car manufacturer recently issued a recall for models built between 2013-2016. Defective airbags is cited as the reason for this recall.
Based on a report posted by Nissan at the website of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), front-passenger airbags might not work in case of a crash.
That’s a serious problem.
Back in 2014, close to a million vehicles were recalled due to problems in detecting whether the passenger seat is empty or not. The auto manufacturer, according to spokesman Steve Yaeger, already knows of “at least three crashes” that resulted in moderate injuries because the airbags did not deploy correctly.
This newest recall includes about 622,000 Nissan Sentra models 2013-2016; Nissan Altima 2013-2016; Nissan Rogue 2014-2017; Nissan Maxima 2016-2017; Nissan Murano 2015-2016; Nissan Pathfinder 2013-2017; Nissan Leaf 2013-2016; and Infiniti Q50 and QX60 2014-2016.
This is just a continuation of an investigation opened by the NHTSA back in August 2015 to determine if Nissan has addressed the problem raised by 124 complaints.
