2016 Nissan LEAF Recalled Over Airbag Issue

Tue Jul 19, 2016 6:15 pm

Nissan is recalling approximately 4,300 2016 LEAFs sold in the U.S. due to an airbag-related issue.

Nissan says that the airbag recall is due to a supplier error. Apparently, the supplier of the passenger airbag wiring harness manufactured the parts out of specification. This means that the harness could disconnect unintentionally and disable the airbag in the process.

Nissan notes the following:

“If the wiring harness disconnects, the passenger air bag may not to deploy during a crash, increasing the risk of injury.”

Nissan is not aware of any incidents connected to this recall.

Nissan technicians will inspect the harness in affected LEAFs and will replace it free of charge if necessary.

Recall notices should be sent out later this month.

Is it a quick fix or a serious issue? Airbag issues can be dangerous.

I know the 2013 airbag issue with the leaf was a separate issue different from the one that is happening now but according to reviews it took people a very long time to get it fixed as the parts are not available

I would think it was in their best interest to fix the recall issues quickly as they will be suspended from selling any Nissan Leaf new or used until each vehicle on their lot is in good working order
