NBC reports that as a safety precaution Nissan is recalling trucks sold in several states as the result of an airbag issue. Nissan explains that a crash zone sensor, which triggers the front airbags, can be negatively impacted by snow or road salt, causing the trigger to malfunction in the event of a traffic accident.
The truck recall impacts 2005 to 2009 Nissan Pathfinders, Frontiers, and Xterra trucks, which were originally purchased or are currently registered in Massachusetts, Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, and seventeen other states across the country.
Fortunately, there have been no reports of car crashes or injuries in connection with the faulty sensor.
