RECALL ISSUED FOR OLDER MODEL NISSAN VEHICLES BECAUSE OF DEFECTIVE AIR BAGS

Nissan is urging owners of nearly 84,000 older model cars not to drive their vehicles due to the risk of exploding air bag inflators.

The National Highway Transportation Safety Administration (NHTSA) said Wednesday that the warning affects certain Nissan vehicles that have “recalled, unrepaired Takata airbags.”
“Due to the age of the vehicles equipped with defective Takata airbag inflators, there is an increased risk the inflator could explode during an airbag deployment, propelling sharp metal fragments which can cause serious injury or death,” Nissan said on the recall page on its website.

The NHTSA said that to date, at least 27 people have been killed in the United States by a defective Takata airbag that exploded and another 400 have allegedly been injured by the inflators. The “do not drive” warning impacts certain 2002 through 2006 Nissan Sentra cars, 2002 through 2004 Pathfinder SUVs and 2002 and 2003 Infiniti QX4 SUVs. The NHTSA said owners should immediately check if their vehicle has an open Takata airbag recall and schedule a free repair for it as soon as possible if it does.
