Nissan announces recall over airbag issue


Nissan announced earlier this week it was recalling roughly 135,000 Infiniti G35 sedans and coupes because of air bag issues.

The company told news agencies that that recall affects G35 Coupes from 2005 to 2007 model years and G35 Sedans from 2005 to 2006 model years.

The recall stems from a problem with the air bag’s wire harness under the front passenger seat. Nissan officials say the wire harness could wear down and interrupt the air bag’s signal causing it not to deploy in a crash.

No injuries have been reported thus far. 

Reports indicated the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said Nissan had not yet provided the agency with a plan to fix the vehicles.

There is no word yet from Nissan Canada responded to the recall notice.
