Nissan Expands Recall for Takata Air Bags

Nissan Motor Company announced yesterday that it was going to expand a product recall in some parts of the US to replace air bags made by Takata Corp. It added that 45,000 Sentras that were made between 2004 and 2006 were not included in the recall before.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, Nissan plans to replace all of the passenger-side air bags that are in these Sentras.

The recall has been expanded after an incident in March where a woman suffered facial injuries from shrapnel in her 2006 Nissan Sentra in Louisiana.

In the last seven years, about 12 automakers have recalled as many as 25 million vehicles equipped with Takata-made air bag inflators. In some cases, these air bags can explode with a high degree of force and shoot metal shards into passengers.

Our Virginia personal injury law team has noticed that more and more car manufacturers have been issuing air bag recalls in the last few years. We like to see companies take responsibility for possible dangers associated with their products. However, the above recall raises questions about why vehicles are being sold with faulty air bags.

Several of our personal injury attorneys have helped victims of many types of defective products to recover damages from the responsible parties. Defective and dangerous products can include literally thousands of items, from air bags, cars, cribs and toys to furniture and lawn equipment.
