Nissan North America has recalled as many as 134,215 Infiniti G35 sedans and coupes in the U.S. for problems related to air bag deployment. The problem affects 2005-2006 G35 sedans manufactured between March 29, 2004 and August 25, 2006 and model year 2005-2007 G35 coupes manufactured from April 1, 2004 through May 30, 2007.
The vehicles are being recalled due to possible damage in the airbag system that could prevent them from deploying in the event of an accident.
According to a report filed with the National Highway Safety Administration, the wire harness connecting the belt tension sensor and the occupant detection sensor control unit under the front passenger seat can experience movement, causing wear and tear on the terminals. Damage to the terminals could result in an interruption of the signal that causes the air bag to deploy.
No accidents or injuries have been reported in connection with the issue.
Nissan has yet to provide NHTSA with a remedy plan or notification schedule, but owners of affected vehicles can get more information by contacting the NHTSA Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 or by going to http://www.safercar.gov.
