Nissan will recall 3.53 million vehicles worldwide to fix an issue identified with the passenger side air-bags.
While there is no official Australian recall notice at this stage, models sold in Australia in recent years, including Pathfinder, Altima, LEAF, Maxima and Murano are likely to be caught up in the recall.
Nissan tell us that it is has been found that the fault could mean that the air-bags may not work properly in the affected cars, sold globally between 2012 and 2016.
The Japanese automaker confirmed three injuries have been linked to the issue but there have been no fatalities.
Nissan spokesman David Reuter says the recalls will commence in the US and other markets in late May.
“The planned remedy varies by vehicle and will include software reprogramming in some models and hardware replacement in other models.”
