Nissan is recalling 3.53 million cars due to issues with the sensors of the passenger side airbag which could lead to the airbag not deploying in case an accident occurs.
This is the fourth recall by Nissan over the issue since 2013 and out of the 3.53 million cars recalled, nearly 3.2 million are in the United States alone.
Affected cars include vehicles from the 2013-2017 model years like the Nissan Altima, Leaf, Maxima, Murano, Pathfinder, Sentra, Rogue, NV200, NV Taxi as well as cars from its Infiniti luxury brand like the JX35/QX60, and the Q50. Also affected is the 2015-2016 Chevrolet City Express van that Nissan makes for the American automaker.
Nissan will fix the issue with a software fix though in around 20 percent of the affected cars a hardware fix will be needed.
