Recall Alert: 2003-05 Infiniti Q45

2005 Infiniti G45

Infiniti parent Nissan is recalling 1,349 2003-05 Infiniti Q45 sedans for potential issues with their seat-mounted dual front side airbags, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

In the affected vehicles, the wiring connecting the airbags could face increased electrical resistance that could result in the seat-mounted side airbags failing to deploy in the event of a crash. This increases the risk of injury. No related injuries or fatalities have been reported, Nissan says.

Nissan will notify owners and fix the wiring connectors free of charge. The automaker says it has already fixed the issue on 75% of the affected vehicles through a voluntary remedy offered in 2009 and 2010.

Owners can call Nissan at 800-647-7261 or NHTSA's vehicle safety hotline at 888-327-4236 for more info.

The Q45s were sedans, not SUVs.
