Takata and its rouge airbags inflators has struck again. This time it affects several locally-sold Nissan models which prompted Nissan Philippines Inc. (NPI) to conduct a preventive service campaign.
The defective airbag inflators in question ‘could’ shoot metal fragments in an event of a crash, thus requiring a replacement if deemed necessary. What Nissan will do is assess the said airbags installed on the affected vehicles and perform the necessary preventive measures at no cost to the vehicle owner.
Not all Nissans though are part of the campaign. The only models (and corresponding production year) included are the Nissan Frontier (2003 – 2008), Nissan Teana (2006 – 2007), Nissan X-Trail (2003 – 2008), Nissan Patrol (2003 – 2008), the Nissan Navara (2007 – 2014), and Nissan Grand Livina (2008 – 2014).
They didn’t say though exactly how many are part of the ‘recall’. But those who own one of the models listed above are advised to call the Nissan Customer Assistance Center (NCAC) hotline at 403-65-93 or an authorized Nissan Dealership nearest them.
