Nissan To Recall 152,000 Cars Worldwide Due To Airbag Issue

Written By:

Nissan, one of Japan's leading car manufacturers has announced a recall of 152,000 cars worldwide due to airbag issues.

These cars that are to be recalled are equipped with airbags manufactured by Takata, a Japanese airbag supplier.

The cars that are to be recalled are the ones that are equipped with Takata's airbag on the passenger side.

The company has expanded the recall after what Nissan claim as an "unusual deployment" at a salvage yard in central Japan.

The same issue even triggered Toyota, the other Japanese carmaker to recall its vehicles as well.

Takata-made airbags have been in the news of late quite a few times because they could harm the occupant in the event of a crash.

When a car has met with an accident and the airbag is deployed, the system could project shrapnel, which could potentially kill an occupant.

Many car manufacturers have issued a recall in the recent past, all being fitted with airbags made from Takata.

Recalls include cars made by many top level manufacturers like BMW, Honda, Toyota, and many more.
