Nissan recalls 990,000 cars over passenger airbag issue

NEW YORK--Japanese automaker Nissan is recalling nearly a million of its vehicles in North America over a defect that could cause the front passenger airbag not to deploy in an accident.

The company did not indicate whether the defect was involved in any reported accidents, in the letter it sent to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

In the affected vehicles, the software that activates the airbags may misclassify "an occupied front passenger seat as empty," Nissan said.

In those cases, "there may be no warning that the air bag may not deploy in a crash where it is designed to deploy, potentially increasing the risk of injury to the front passenger seat occupant," it warned.
