More About Takata Airbags

Takata airbag recalls first began in 2008 and subsequent recalls have followed. Over the years, Takata airbags have impacted millions of vehicles, resulting in the company declaring bankruptcy and selling the company to Key Safety Systems.

In this recall specifically, there was a manufacturing problem in Monclova, Mexico that had the potential to cause “overloading of the propellant or asymmetric loading of the propellant during manufacturing.” This has the potential to result in an inflator rupture.

Nissan is not aware of any incidents related to this recall. Consumers can contact Nissan directly at 800-867-7669 or Infiniti at 800-662-6200.
