In the latest vehicle recall, in a year full of vehicle recalls, Nissan has announced the company is recalling over a million vehicles mostly in the US as a result of a defective airbag. The software in the vehicles may cause the front passenger airbag to deactivate, classifying the seat as empty.
The affected Nissan vehicles include:
- 2013 Nissan NV 200 cargo van
- 2013 Infiniti JX35 crossover vehicle
- 2013-2014 Altima sedan, Sentra small car, and Pathfinder SUV
- 2013-2014 Leaf electric car
- 2014 Infiniti Q50 sedan and QX60 crossover
The worry with this software problem is that, in case of an auto accident, the airbag won’t deploy like it’s supposed to, which can seriously injure or kill the person in the passenger seat.
