Nissan recalls new Pathfinder and Infiniti SUVs with faulty seat belts

Franklin, TN – March 26, 2024 – Nissan (OTCMKTS:NSANY), which owns the Infiniti brand, is recalling 12,019 SUVs because their seat belts may not “properly restrain” the driver in an accident. This ups the risk of injury.

The following models are affected by this recall: 

  • 2024 Nissan Pathfinder
  • 2024 Infiniti QX60

Recall summary

When there is a crash, the seat belt tightens against the occupant torso to prevent him from flying through the windshield. This is achieved thanks to the seat belt pretensioner, as reported.

The pretensioner in the affected cars is missing a metal pin used to hold it together. As a result, it may not work as intended.

Recall risks

If the driver is not properly restrained during a crash, he or she may suffer greater injuries.

Other Nissan recalls

Earlier this month, Nissan recalled over 9,700 Rogue SUVs whose pretensioners were bent during the manufacturing process, as reported.

Over 230,000 Sentra sedans were recalled for the second time in September 2023 due to the loss of steering, also as reported.

The repair

Dealers will replace the faulty pretensioners free of charge. 

Owners should receive letters with more information on April 18, 2024.
