Software glitch prompts new Nissan recall

See also

Nissan is recalling 990,000 vehicles in the US and another 60,000 in Canada including 2013-2014 Leafs, Pathfinders, Sentras, as well as 2014 Infiniti QX60 and Q50 SUVs due to malfunctioning airbag sensors in the front passenger seats. According to the NHTSA, the sensors are designed to determine the weight of a passenger and turn the airbags off if it detects a child. However, it seems as though they have been also turning them off even when an adult is in the seat. NV200 taxi vans are also involved in the recall.

While most of the vehicles were recalled last month for similar problems, Nissan announced that the lastest recall will begin the middle of April. Owners will be notified by the company, and dealers will replace the sensors for free.

For more information, consumers can contact the NHTSA at 1200 New Jersey Ave., SE, West Building, Washington, DC 20590 1-888-327-4236. or contact Nissan North America Inc. 1 Nissan Way, Franklin, TN 37067 615 725-1000. Canadian consumers can reach Nissan Canada at 5290 Orbitor Dr., Mississauga, Ont L4W 4Z5 905 629-2888.
