Nissan Recalls 226,000 Vehicles Over Faulty Air bags

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) announced on Saturday that Nissan North America, Inc. will recall more than 226,000 vehicles to address a safety defect in the passenger side frontal air bag. At issue: when the passenger side frontal air bag deploys, the inflator could rupture, causing metal fragments to fly out and potentially injure passengers.
The recall effects certain 2002-2003 Nissan Maxima, Pathfinder and Infiniti l35 and QX4 models; 2002-2004 Nissan Sentra and 2003 Infiniti FX vehicles.
According to NHTSA, owners of vehicles on which a defective air bag may have been installed  – as either original equipment or a replacement –  will be contacted. Dealers will replace any defective air bags that are identified free of charge. For more information, contact Nissan customer service at 1-800-647-7261 or visit for more information.
