Some car buyers stay away from the first few batches of an all-new model to allow time for teething issues to be ironed out. There could be some truth in such beliefs. A case in point is the recent recall of five 2013 model year Nissan vehicles due to defective passenger airbag issue.

These five models are the Sentra (Sylphy), Altima, Pathfinder, Leaf and Infiniti JX35.

According to the US National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the seat-mounted sensor could fail to defect the presence of the passenger, resulting in the airbag not deploying in the event of a severe crash. The faulty sensor was discovered at one of Nissan's manufacturing sites when the airbag warning light was observed. The problem was traced back to the sensorís supplier which changed the manufacturing process.

Customers with the affected vehicles will receive notifications starting from April.

I have been a car fanatic since 1989, when my father was changing our family car then to a Toyota Corolla 1.6 GL fitted with a Twin Cam 16 valve engine that was carburetor-fed, a big deal back in those days. The automobile technology and industry fascinates me and I hope to broadcast these interesting developments to everyone out there through this blog.
