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 seat-mounted airbags are found to unexpectedly deploy when the door is slammed, placing passengers at risk for injury.

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.
