  7. Some Nissan/Infiniti models recalled...

[YesAuto News] A few days ago, Dongfeng Motor Co., Ltd. filed a recall plan with the General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine in accordance with the requirements of the “Regulations on the Recall of Defective Automobile Products” and decided to recall the following vehicles, a total of 11,055 vehicles from October 24, 2014 .

Involved:

(1) A total of 10 imported Patrol vehicles produced from September 23, 2011 to December 5, 2013;

(2) Part of Marci cars produced from September 2, 2010 to November 19, 2011, a total of 623 vehicles;

(3) Some 10,422 new Sunshine cars produced from December 28, 2010 to November 19, 2011.

(4) Imported Infiniti QX56 and QX80 cars produced from March 15, 2013 to January 7, 2014, a total of 61 units. Affected by parts supply channels and transportation factors, this recall will be implemented on November 19, 2014.

Reason for recall:

For some vehicles within the scope of this recall, due to supplier manufacturing reasons, the internal pressure of the gas generator may rise abnormally when the airbag in front of the driver's seat is deployed. In extreme cases, the gas generator may be damaged, posing a safety hazard.

Recall background:

In the early morning of October 24th, Beijing time, Nissan Motor Company stated that the company will recall 260,000 vehicles worldwide, mainly because of defects in the driver's seat airbags provided by Takata. Japanese auto parts manufacturer Takata is currently at the center of a series of car recalls caused by airbag problems. These airbags provided by Takata have defects, which may cause parts to fly when the airbag is deployed and cause personal injury. The domestic recall is part of Nissan's global recall.

Solution:

Dongfeng Motor Co., Ltd. and Nissan (China) Investment Co., Ltd. will replace the inflator parts of qualified driving seat airbags for free of charge for vehicles within the scope of the recall to eliminate potential safety hazards.

Dongfeng Motor Co., Ltd. and Nissan (China) Investment Co., Ltd. will proactively contact relevant car owners through franchised stores to arrange free maintenance. Users can call the customer service hotline: Dongfeng Nissan (800-830-8899, 400-830-8899), Infiniti (800-880-9090, 400-880-9090) for consultation.
