Nissan recalls over 200,000 vehicles

Comments Off

Nissan Motor Company announced a voluntary recall of over 200,000 vehicles due to a suspected safety defect in some passenger side airbags. The voluntary recall covers 2007 and 2008 Nissan Altima, Altima Coupe, 350Z, Murano and Rogue; and Infiniti G35 Sedan, G37 Coupe and EX35 built from March 12, 2007 to May 27, 2008, the company said in a notice to the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

Nissan reports that it began looking into the problem after receiving several complaints of flashing airbag warning lights, and, after an investigation, the company determined that in some cases, the passenger side airbag may not receive a proper signal in an accident. Nissan believes that less than 1% of vehicles are affected by the defect, but they still plan to begin the recall on November 3rd.
