Nissan Recalls Vehicles for Air Bag Problem

Posted: Updated:

Nissan is recalling almost 990,000 cars, SUVs and minivans in the U.S. because the front passenger air bags may not inflate in a crash.

Affected vehicles include the 2013-2014 Altima sedan and Sentra small car and Pathfinder SUV; 2013-2014 Leaf electric car; the 2013 Infiniti JX35 crossover vehicle; and the 2014 Infiniti Q50 sedan and QX60 crossover; as well as the 2013 Nissan NV 200 cargo van, according to the NHTSA documents.

The company tells the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration that the vehicles' computer software may not detect an adult in the passenger seat. If that happens, the air bags won't inflate.

Nissan says it's not aware of any deaths caused by the problem, but it can't give details about injuries.

Nissan will notify owners and dealers will update the software for free. The recall is expected to start in mid-April.
