Nissan North America is adding 402,450 vehicles to the expanded Takata recall for defective front-passenger air bag inflators, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). The vehicles include:
• 2005-’08 Infiniti FX35
• 2005-’08 Infiniti FX45
• 2003-’04 Infiniti I30
• 2003-’04 Infiniti I35
• 2006-’10 Infiniti M35
• 2006-’10 Infiniti M45
• 2007-’11 Nissan Versa
These vehicles are equipped with certain air bag inflators assembled as part of the passenger frontal air bag modules and used as original equipment or replacement equipment. These inflators may rupture due to propellant degradation occurring after long-term exposure to absolute humidity and temperature cycling. An inflator rupture may result in metal fragments striking the vehicle occupants, resulting in serious injury or death. All of this came from NHTSA’s summary.
Nissan says there are “no known incidents.” Nissan dealers and Infiniti dealers will replace the front-passenger airbag inflator. Parts are not currently available. Owners will be sent an interim notification by the end of July. A second notice will be mailed when parts are available. Owners can contact Nissan customer service at 1-800-647-7261.
