Nissan's Airbag Problem Leads To Recall Of 54,000 Cars
Nissan is recalling more than 54,000 cars because of airbag problems which could potentially hurt passengers. The massive recall of the popular car brand is due to its faulty airbag installment and sensor problems. The seat-mounted airbags are found to unexpectedly deploy when the door is slammed, placing passengers at risk for injury.
Nissan North America says the recall specifically affects the 2012 Nissan Versa vehicles which have. The car company states that the problem may be caused by the degradation of the side impact sensor connector pins. This could lead to the unexpected deployment of the air bags.
The faulty sensors which cause Nissan's airbag problems can increase the risk of injury as reported. However, no report has been made of any injured passengers. According to the CBS 12, to compensate for the faulty parts, which could potentially cause injury, Nissan says that dealers will install a new jumper harness and replace the side impact sensors free of charge.
It has not been a good year for Nissan as millions of its cars were also recalled last year due to the same problem. Despite having only a few incidents of crashes where the airbags did not deploy properly, the company has decided to recall units for safety purposes. Sensor problems were also cited as a reason for the recall.
The Nissan group assures the public that it working to fix the airbag problems, and prevent any physical injuries for its users.
