Nissan is recalling about 3.2 million cars. The cars may have a problem with the sensors that determine whether the front passenger seat is occupied and if the occupant is a child or an adult. The defective sensors may mistakenly determine an adult is a child or see the seat as empty and turn off the air bag.
The recall applies to some cars of the following models: the 2016-2017 Nissan Maxima, 2013-2016 Nissan Altima, NV200, LEAF and Sentra, 2013-2017 Nissan Pathfinder, 2014-2016 Nissan NV200 Taxi, Infiniti QX60 and Q50, 2014-2017 Nissan Rogue, 2015-2016 Nissan Murano, Chevrolet City Express and 2013 Infiniti JX35 vehicles.
Nissan will notify owners and offer a free fix, which will be scheduled when it’s determined how the problem can be fixed.
