Nissan Recall - Northern Michigan's News Leader

Nissan Recall

Posted: Updated:

Nissan is recalling 5 of their 2013 models in the U.S. because of a faulty sensor.

The sensor can permanently turn off the front seat passenger air bag.

If a child is in the front passenger seat the sensor is supposed to turn off the airbags, but the malfunctioning sensors can turn the air bags off permanently.

The Altima midsize car, Leaf electric car, Pathfinder SUV, Sentra compact, and Infiniti JX35 SUV are all covered in the recall.

With 49,000 cars sold this year alone, the Altima is Nissan's top selling car.

Nissan says they still haven't determined the number of vehicles affected.

Dealers will inspect the sensors starting in April and replace them for free if necessary.
