Nissan issues Takata airbag recall for some models

Some Nissan drivers are facing a Takata airbag recall.

The manufacturer and the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicle is urging owners of certain 2001 to 2006 Nissan/INFINITI models to contact their dealership for free repairs of the potentially deadly airbag inflators. The front passenger air bag can rupture in a crash, and could result in serious injury or death.

“These notices should not be ignored,” they announced in a press release.

The following model year vehicles may be equipped with recalled airbags:

INFINITI

FX35/FX45 with the model years 2003-2005

I30 with the model year 2001

I35 with the model years 2002-2004

M35/M45 with the model year 2006

QX4 with the model years 2002-2003

NISSAN

Maxima with the model years 2001-2003

Pathfinder with the model years 2002-2004

Sentra with the model years2002-2006

If a customer is uncertain if his or her vehicle is affected, they can check their vehicle identification number (VIN) by contacting their Nissan or INFINITI retailer, visit the NHTSA website, or a Nissan or INFINITI website. The VIN can be found at the top left corner of the vehicle’s dashboard through the windshield.
