Recall Roundup: Nissan Pathfinder, Sentra; Toyota RAV4

Recall Roundup: Nissan Pathfinder, Sentra; Toyota RAV4

Nissan

Vehicles Affected: Approximately 264,000 model-year 2004 Nissan Pathfinder SUVs manufactured from Jan. 6 to July 19, 2004, and model-year 2004-06 Nissan Sentra sedans built from Jan. 7, 2004, to Aug. 26, 2006. This is an expansion of an earlier recall for defective Takata airbags.

The Problem: When the passenger-side frontal airbag is deployed, excessive internal pressure could cause the inflator to rupture. Metal fragments could strike and injure the occupants.

The Fix: The recall is expected to begin on June 15. Dealers will replace the passenger airbag inflator for free.

What Owners Should Do: For more info, owners can call Nissan at 800-647-7261 or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration at 888-327-4236 for more information.

Vehicles Affected: Approximately 160,000 model-year 2004-05 Toyota RAV4 compact SUVs manufactured between May 13, 2003, and Oct. 25, 2005

The Problem: In the recalled vehicles, the driver-side dual-stage frontal airbag may be susceptible to moisture intrusion, which could cause the inflator to rupture or the airbag to deploy unexpectedly. In a crash where the frontal airbag deploys, the airbag inflator could rupture with metal fragments potentially injuring the driver or passengers.

The Fix: Dealers will replace the driver’s frontal airbag for free.

What Owners Should Do: Toyota will notify affected owners by mid-July. For more info, owners can call Toyota at 800-331-4331 or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration at 888-327-4236 for more information.
