Default Airbags - All 2000 - 2003 Maximas

It was just announced that they are recalling all 2000 and newer 2000 to 2003 Nissan Maximas for a faulty airbag. This is the largest recall in history (there are more cars recalled then just Maximas)

Japan carmakers recall 3.4 million vehicles for Takata airbag flaw
http://www.nytimes.com/2013/04/12/bu...eid=auto&_r=1&

Toyota: Corolla, Tundra, Yaris, Camry
Nissan: Maxima, Cube

The models are the 2001-3 Toyota Corolla, Corolla Matrix, Sequoia and Tundra, and Lexus SC 430.

The Hondas being recalled are 43,000 2002-3 CR-V models; 426,000 2001-3 Civics; and 92,000 2002 Odyssey minivans. The Mazdas are the 2003-4 Mazda 6 and 2004 RX-8.

The Nissans being recalled are the 2001-3 Nissan Maxima, Infiniti FX, Infiniti QX4, Nissan Pathfinder and Nissan Sentra, a Nissan spokesman, Steve Yaeger, wrote in an e-mail.

Update: NY Times has a better write up. It is the 2000 to 2003 Maxima (as well as other cars)

The good news is that Nissan is owning up to it and the numbers are quite low at 480k units. The bigger question is why does a recall involving personal safety takes 10 years to surface. IMO, People should be fired!

How would we know if we are part of the recall of airbags, and what about if your out of warranty?

Jingiko, warranty is not a factor when it comes to recalls due to the fact that it is a safety issue. You usually take the vehicle in question to your closest dealer and they perform the service and replace parts (if need be) free of charge. I found an article on the recall on the Chicago tribune. It does not specify the years of the vehicles however, it does mention Nissan Maxima among other vehicles year 2000 and newer. The best advice here is to contact your local dealer, they should have answers. I am going to do the same.. I provided the link for those interested to read. click below:

NY Times has a better writeup of the recall, it is 2000 to 2003.

Changing the title now

Here is the more thorough information:
The models are the 2001-3 Toyota Corolla, Corolla Matrix, Sequoia and Tundra, and Lexus SC 430.

The Hondas being recalled are 43,000 2002-3 CR-V models; 426,000 2001-3 Civics; and 92,000 2002 Odyssey minivans. The Mazdas are the 2003-4 Mazda 6 and 2004 RX-8.

The news articles regarding this huge airbag recall are vague and poorly written leaving the consumer frustrated and in the dark regarding the exact year and models being recalled. Compiling a list of the recalled cars seems to be too great a task for these over zealous journalists rushing to get a story to the public with the only goal being to get their name on a byline for a breaking story.

@xXJU5T_L0UxX is correct. A warranty has no bearing on a recall. Recalls in most cases are fixed at the manufacturer’s expense leaving the consumer with no out of pocket expense. (Even if the warranty has expired.)

My limited search did find this list on this website:


Millions Of Japanese Cars Recalled Over Airbag Faults - All News Is Global |
Here is a list of the models – assembled between 2000 and 2004 - affected:
Toyota: Vorolla, Tundra, Lexus SC.
Honda: Civic, CR-V, Odyssey.
Nissan: Cube, X-Trail, Maxima, Teana.
Mazda: RX-8, Mazda 6.

A huge but safe joke for Nissan. Thousands of 5th gens are already in Africa.
