Last week, Toyota announced a recall to address the issue of a possible improperly manufactured passenger side front airbag inflator, one that involves 18,700 units of the Camry and Corolla Altis. Now, Nissan has done the same for the Cube, X-Trail, Maxima and Teana models that were manufactured from August 2000 to January 2004

The recall involves a total of 480,000 units of the abovementioned vehicles. Nissan will check and, if necessary, replace the potential faulty front passenger air bag inflator. Incorrect propellant wafers with insufficient density installed in certain inflators of the front passenger’s airbag may cause the internal pressure of the inflator to rise excessively during deployment.

Edaran Tan Chong Motor clarifies that only four CBU imported units of the Nissan X-Trail are affected by this global recall. CKD units of the SUV are not affected.

Tan Chong Express Auto Service Centre has identified the affected units and will contact the owners for further action. There will be no parts or labour charges, of course.
