DETROIT — Nissan is recalling just over 1 million cars, SUVs, and vans because the front passenger air bags may not inflate in a crash. It’s the company’s second recall to fix the same problem.
The recall affects the Altima midsize car, Leaf electric car, Pathfinder SUV, and Sentra compact models from the 2013 and 2014 model years, as well as the NV200 Taxi van and Infiniti JX35 SUV from 2013. Also covered are the Infiniti QX60 and Q50 SUVs from 2014.
In documents filed with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, Nissan said the vehicles’ computer software may not detect an adult in the passenger seat. If that happens, the air bags won’t inflate.
