Default Air Bag Recall

Nissan recalls 989,701 vehicles in North America for airbags | The Detroit News

The recall will include the 2014 Infiniti Q50 sedan and QX60 crossover, the 2013-14 Pathfinder sport utility vehicle, Leaf electric car and Sentra compact, according to the statement.

Consider this another chance to get a free car wash.

Nissan had this issue for the past 5+ years. I'm just surprised it took them that long to finally do a recall. And what's even worse is with them knowing they had a passenger airbag/sensor problem, they still went ahead and used same parts for their next generation cars.

Mid-April? Hope no one gets in an accident before then and has this issue.

All car companies have had airbag issues since day one the airbags have been installed in the cars because there are limited airbag manufacturers.
Nothing alarming.

I am not surprised.

I have been having issues with the airbag off light being on with my wife in the car and with the seatbelt reminder staying on after passengers exit.

Like most of the rest of my problems, Infiniti has maintained these things to be normal.

This car is a mess. Soon enough it will no longer be my problem.

It says SUV QX60 and Q50...did they mean the QX50? Or just confused the Q50 as being an SUV like the rest of the world did when it first came out?

I got a call last week from dealer regarding recall. When I asked what's the recall all about? She said, it is just system update and she did not know much detail about based on what she is looking into computer. I asked her, is this something urgent or critical? she said no. So since I haven't had a chance to take my car, I guess it can wait.
My appointment is this weekend and I will find out if this is about the airbag.

It happened to my twice when my friend was sitting there and the airbag light went on. I thought maybe because she is only 90lbs and the system thought it is a children? or malfunction?

toinfiniti, my car is going in tomorrow.
They were also pretty vague on the phone so I'm not sure it's for DAS or something else.
Should find out more tomorrow.

My service department said to expect a recall on this mid-April. I told them to expect to own my car by then.
