2015 Nissan Altima: Car Seat Check

2015-altima

There's no doubt many families consider Nissan's popular midsize sedan when shopping for a car. After a full redesign for 2013, not much about the Altima has changed for the 2015 model year aside from some technology and convenience feature upgrades. Parents will find that the sedan's wide, flat backseat comfortably accommodates two child-safety seats, but crowded buckles and Latch anchors made installation less than easy.

How many car seats fit in the second row? Two

Recall Alert: 53,000 Nissan SUVs, Sedans and Infiniti Crossovers, Sedans

2004NissanPathfinderRecall

Vehicles Affected: Nearly 53,000 model-year 2003-04 Nissan Pathfinder SUVs, 2004-06 Sentra sedans, 2003-05 Infiniti FX35 and FX45 luxury crossovers, 2003-04 I35 luxury sedans, and 2006 M35 and M45 luxury sport sedans, all originally sold or currently registered in areas with high absolute humidity, including Puerto Rico, Hawaii, the U.S. Virgin Islands, Guam, Saipan, American Samoa, Florida and adjacent counties in southern Georgia, as well as coastal areas of Alabama, Louisiana, Mississippi and Texas

The Problem: Upon deployment of the passenger-side frontal airbag, excessive internal pressure may cause the inflator to rupture. In a crash necessitating deployment of the passenger-side frontal airbag, a rupture could propel metal fragments, striking and seriously injuring occupants. This action is part of the massive ongoing Takata airbag recall that so far has affected nearly 7.8 million vehicles from 10 automakers.

The Fix: Nissan will notify owners, and dealers will replace the passenger-side airbag inflator for free. The automaker has not yet provided a notification schedule.

What Owners Should Do: Owners can call Nissan at 800-647-7261, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236 or go to www.safercar.gov for more info.

Recall Alert: 2014 Infiniti Q50 Hybrid and Q70 Hybrid

2014InfinitiQ50HybridRecall

Vehicles Affected: More than 6,200 model-year 2014 Infiniti Q50 Hybrid and Q70 Hybrid luxury sedans are being recalled in two separate actions, one affecting more than 5,400 cars and the other more than 800 cars. Q50 Hybrid sedans in the larger recall were manufactured between Dec. 10, 2012, and June 25, 2014, and in the smaller recall between Oct. 16, 2013, and Jan. 27, 2014. Q70 Hybrid sedans in the larger recall were manufactured between Nov. 7, 2013, and May 7, 2014, and in the smaller recall between Nov. 7, 2013, and Dec. 10, 2013.

The Problem: In the larger recall, both Q50 and Q70 hybrid sedans may have a software error that could cause the electric motor to stop working while the vehicle is being driven in electric-only mode, increasing the risk of a crash. In the smaller action, both sedans may have been assembled with transmissions that have damaged housings, which could crack and fracture, creating road debris and disabling the vehicle, and increasing the risk of a crash.

The Fix: In the larger recall, Infiniti manufacturer Nissan will notify owners starting in mid-November, and dealers will reprogram the inverter software. In the smaller action, the automaker will also begin notifying owners in mid-November, and dealers will inspect the transmission assembly and replace it if cracks are found. Repairs in both cases will be made for free.

What Owners Should Do: Owners can call Nissan at 800-647-7261 or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236, or go to www.safercar.gov, for more info.

Recall Alert: 2013 Infiniti QX56, 2014 QX80

2013InfinitiQX56Recall

Vehicles Affected: More than 1,800 model-year 2013 Infiniti QX56 SUVs manufactured between Sept. 1, 2012, and April 26, 2013, and model-year 2014 Infiniti QX80 SUVs manufactured between June 18, 2013, and Feb. 11, 2014

The Problem: The driver's frontal airbag inflator may have been manufactured with an incorrect part. In a crash necessitating the deployment of the driver's airbag, the incorrect part may block the flow of propellant to the airbag and the inflator may rupture, which could cause metal fragments to strike and potentially seriously injure vehicle occupants. This latest action is part of the massive ongoing Takata airbag recall affecting nearly 8 million vehicles from 10 automakers.

The Fix: Infiniti manufacturer Nissan will begin notifying owners in late December, and dealers will replace the front driver airbag inflator for free.

What Owners Should Do: Owners can call Nissan at 800-647-7261, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236 or to go www.safercar.gov for more info.

What Cars Are Included in the Takata Airbag Recall?

IMG_3619

This week saw the latest expansion of airbag recalls that began 18 months ago from Japanese supplier Takata Corp. and is now linked to at least four deaths. As of today, the recall affects some 7.8 million vehicles in the U.S. from 10 automakers based in three continents. The bulk of them — 5 million — are from Honda. Takata issued a statement earlier this year that noted the incidents of airbag malfunction — where a faulty inflator can send metal and plastic shrapnel into occupants if the front passenger airbag deploys in a crash — have occurred in warm areas like Florida and Puerto Rico, and it suspects that high humidity plays a role in the problem. Returned airbags from Toyota confirmed as much, USA Today reports.

USA Today reports most owners should have already received recall notices by now, and some automakers — namely, Toyota and BMW — have advised keeping the front passenger seat clear of occupants until a dealer inspects the car for a faulty inflator and, if there is one, replaces it.

What cars have been recalled? And what should you do if you get a notice? We've compiled everything we know so far below:
