Nissan has issued a recall for several vehicles across the United States and Canada because of the Takata SPI Passenger Air Bag inflators.
Several models produced by Nissan are currently being affected by the “famous” Takata airbag issue. According to the Japanese based automaker, there are a total of approximately 326, 000 units affected by this condition and this includes the Sentra, the Pathfinder and the X-Trail.
“This recall expansion is intended to address vehicles equipped with SPI inflators that are not already subject to previously announced recalls. More specifically, this includes vehicles located outside the high absolute humidity areas manufactured between early 2004 and end of production”, said the carmaker in its official press release.
The affected models are the 2004 to 2006 Sentra, the 2004 Pathfinder and the 2005 to 2006 X-Trail. Nissan hasn’t announced any details on possible crashes or injuries related to this condition and the company’s dealers will be replacing the passenger side airbag inflators free of charge. Owners of these vehicles will be notified by mail in June and more info on the recall will be announced then. Meanwhile, if you happen to own such a vehicle and you would like to find out more on the issue, you should contact your local Nissan dealership. The car manufacturer is still working with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration on details of what vehicles have been affected.
