Nissan issues ‘do not drive’ warning for 84,000 older-model vehicles over Takata air bags

Nissan has issued a ‘do not drive’ warning for about 84,000 older-model vehicles because they carry recalled Takata-made airbags.

The warning affects certain model year 2002-2006 Nissan Sentra, 2002-2004 Nissan Pathfinder and 2002-2003 Infiniti QX4 vehicles.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration instructed drivers in a release not to drive an affected vehicle until a repair is completed and the defective air bag is replaced.

First announced in 2013, the Takata air bag recall remains the largest, and one of the deadliest, in history. The NHTSA has confirmed 27 people in the U.S. have been killed by defective Takata air bags that exploded, while at least 400 people have been injured.

Takata filed for bankruptcy protection in 2017.
