Infiniti SUVs Recalled Again for Faulty Passenger Airbags
It’s the third time these FX35 and FX45 SUVs have been recalled for airbag problems
Vehicles recalled: Certain Infiniti FX35 and FX45 SUVs from the 2006 through 2008 model years that have already had their passenger-side airbags replaced in a previous recall.
The problem: A change in the way the replacement airbags were folded at the airbag supplier’s factory means they could rupture during deployment.
The fix: Infiniti dealerships will replace the faulty airbags free of charge. The recall is expected to begin April 18, 2021.
How to contact the manufacturer: Infiniti will notify owners of affected vehicles by first-class mail. Owners may also contact Infiniti at 800-662-6200.
NHTSA campaign number: 21V139. Infiniti’s number for this recall is R20C2.
Check to see whether your vehicle has an open recall: NHTSA’s website will tell you whether your vehicle has any open recalls that need to be addressed.
If you plug your car’s 17-digit vehicle identification number (VIN) into NHTSA’s website and a recall doesn’t appear, it means your vehicle doesn’t currently have any open recalls. Because automakers issue recalls often, and for many older vehicles, we recommend checking back regularly to see whether your vehicle has had a recall issued.
