The recall was announced this morning by the Japanese auto manufacturer to alert consumers about the problem that has already injured three people, but fortunately there are no known deaths resulting from the faulty sensors.
The car maker reports that certain model Nissan, Infinity and Chevrolet models built by Nissan have failed to properly identify whether someone is sitting in the front passenger side seat. The sensor also is failing to identify whether a passenger is an adult or child. The failure to identify these things is dangerous because if there were a collision, the airbags would not deploy.
Specifically, the Nissan recall will cover vehicles made between 2013 and 2017. The models subject to the recall include the Nissan Altima, Nissan Leaf, Nissan Maxima, Nissan Murano, Nissan Pathfinder, Nissan Sentra, Nissan Rogue, Nissan NV200, Nissan NV Taxi, Infiniti, Nissan JX35 and Qx60s, The recall also targets 2013 to 2017 Chevrolet City Express vehicles made for General Motors by Nissan.
The recall will take place in late May when Nissan notifies its dealers.
