Nissan has issued a recall on more than 26,000 model-year 2006-08 Infiniti FX35 and FX45 SUVs that have already had the passenger side airbags replaced in an earlier recall. The replacement airbags have an incorrectly folded airbag cushion that could rupture during deployment, increasing the risk of injury.
Infiniti will begin notifying owners on April 18. Owners can call the automaker at 800-662-6200 or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle safety hotline at 888-327-4236 to learn more.
To resolve the issue, dealers will replace the faulty airbags.
Vehicle manufacturers are legally required to repair any recalled issues or replace the defective part for free under the Highway Safety Act of 1970. If the dealership refuses to fix the problem or attempts to charge you for the repair, contact the manufacturer immediately.
