Large vehicle recall started because of airbags

Large vehicle recall started because of airbags

Around 3.2 million vehicles in the United States are being recalled by large manufacturer Nissan due to the fact that the airbag might not properly inflate during a crash the national highway traffic safety administration announced on Friday. Over the past couple years automakers have tried to fix the common airbag problems here in the United States and overseas increasing the amount of air bag recalls to the largest amount ever recorded. One of the main problems is that the detection system cannot determine whether there’s a passenger sitting in a seat if a child or small adult is sitting in it.

Because of this issue there have been three significant crashes where the passengers have incurred injuries Nissan explained. They however failed to mention whether children were involved in these crashes and the incidents are still not totally known by the public. The recall with Nissan Sentras begin in 2014 and extends to vehicles manufactured in 2013 through 2016. there is a risk that the airbag will go off when it’s smaller size passengers sitting in them which poses a significant risk to children a federal report claims.

Many of Nissan’s most popular vehicles have been recalled including Infiniti models, Altima, Maxima, Pathfinder and many other makes. There was an investigation of whether this airbag defect properly been resolved by Nissan in which the response was to increase the amount of vehicles recalled by nearly 3 million. Gordon & Doner also claim that it’s possible that some dealerships don’t know how to handle the problem and might not yet be able to replace all of the malfunctioning airbags in Nissan vehicles. Although the malfunction is primarily reported in United States Nissan vehicles there are about .3 million Vehicles affected in the rest of the world. If you have a Nissan vehicle from the year 2013 to 2016 it’s recommended that you check the national highway traffic safety administration report to see if your vehicle is affected.

High chance that vehicle puts children at risk

High chance that vehicle puts children at risk

A family in Texas was awarded nearly $125 million because a popular auto manufacturer never recalled a vehicle that would cost a fraction of the price to fix. Crash test footage shows that during a crash to the vehicle involved in the lawsuit there’s a possibility drivers in the front seat can get launched into the back seat area when hit from the rear. This results in very serious injury especially if there are young adults sitting in the backseat since they can get injured by drivers and passengers in the front seat.

This occurred to the family involved in the Audi lawsuit when they were involved in a rear end crash in 2012. The driver was launched to the back of the vehicle and rammed headfirst into his son. It resulted in serious injury including brain damage, vision impairment, and paralysis to the son. The victim of this crash is not expected to heal from his extensive injuries.

Even though there is evidence supporting the occurrence of this problem on a crash test video the defense team for Audi explained that the front seats were strong enough to withstand a rear end collision. They blame the crash on the father not properly following laws since he was not strapped to a seatbelt and his son was not placed in a booster seat even though the boy was only 7 years old. The child was also not wearing a seatbelt.

High chance that vehicle puts children at risk

There is some evidence that this issue is a lot more prevalent than first thought. A study in 2008 shows that with current standard vehicle front seats there is a high risk of injury to children if the seat is damaged in an accident. Car manufacturers say that the study does not conclusively show that there need to be new standards for car seats since the study didn’t have a large sample of participants.
