Nissan Recalls 130,000 Cars

Flaw in wiring on the passenger side could cause the airbag to shut off

Nissan on May 5 recalled more than 130,000 of its Infiniti G35 model sedan and coupes in the U.S. over concerns about the vehicle's airbag system.

The company said a flaw in wiring on the passenger side could cause the airbag to shut off.

"On a small percentage of the potentially affected vehicles, a harness connector issue could cause the passenger airbag to shut off," the firm said.

Nissan USA hinted that more recalls could be on the way. "Infiniti will also address this issue in each individual market where these vehicles have been distributed," the firm said.

The affected cars date from 2005 to 2006 G35 sedans and 2005 to 2007 coupes.

"Infiniti will inspect and repair the passenger air bag harness to address this issue. Infiniti is committed to a high level of safety, customer service and satisfaction and is working with its dealers to promptly address this issue."
