Nissan Recalls Nearly 1 Million Vehicles for Airbag Issue

Posted: Updated:

NBCRightNow.com - Nissan is recalling nearly 1 million vehicles in the United States because some airbags might not work in a crash.

The recall includes the 2013 and 2014 Altima, Leaf, Pathfinder and Sentra Models as well as the 2013 NV-200 Taxi Van, the Infiniti JX-35 SUV and the 2014 Infiniti QX-50.

A Nissan spokesperson says the computers in the vehicles may not detect an adult sitting in the front passenger seat.

When that happens, the air bags will not inflate in the event of a crash.

The auto maker is notifying vehicle owners so they can get a free software update.

The recall is expected to begin in mid-April.
