NEWS: Toyota, Honda, Nissan recall 2 million vehicles with air bag problem
Yahoo News  @ April 11, 2013

APRIL 2013 -- Toyota, Honda and Nissan are recalling more than 3 million vehicles globally for an identical problem with air bags on the passenger side whose inflator may burst, sending plastic pieces flying.

No injuries have been reported related to the problem.

The recall for air bags made by Japan's Takata Corp. affects other automakers including non-Japanese manufacturers, Takata spokeswoman Akiko Watanabe said Thursday. She declined to give details.

Toyota Motor Corp. is recalling 1.7 million vehicles, with some 580,000 in North America, another 490,000 in Europe and 320,000 in Japan. Affected models include the Corolla, Tundra, Lexus SC, produced between November 2000 and March 2004.

Toyota said it had received five reports of air bag problems, three in the U.S. and two in Japan, but there have been no injuries.

The automaker suffered a blow to its reputation from a series of massive recalls in 2009 and 2010, including faulty braking, sticky gas pedals and defective floor mats, partly a reflection of how various models used the same parts to save costs. But the latest recall is affecting other major automakers as well.

Honda Motor Co. is recalling 1.1 million vehicles. About 680,000 are in North America, 270,000 in Japan and 64,000 in Europe. The models include the Civic, CR-V and Odyssey.

The automakers have reported the problem to the Transport Ministry in Japan, and will be reporting other recalls later in the day in other regions, they said.
The recall extends to Latin America, China, other Asian nations, the Middle East and Africa.

Nissan Motor Co. recalled 480,000 vehicles globally, some 137,000 of them in Japan, for the air bag problem.

The Yokohama-based automaker said vehicles in North America and Europe are affected, but did not immediately have other details on its 343,000 overseas recalls.
Recalled models in Japan include the Cube, X-Trail, Maxima and Teana, made from August 2000 to January 2004, spokesman said.

The problem crept in because of two human errors during production. A worker forgot to turn on the switch for a system weeding out defective products and parts were improperly stored, which exposed them to humidity, according to Honda spokeswoman.

Also affected under the same recall were the RX-8 and Mazda 6 at Mazda Motor Corp.

The Hiroshima-based automaker said 45,000 vehicles were recalled, including 4,000 in Japan. It did not give numbers for other regions, but said recalls will be announced in North America, Europe, China and other nations.

NEWS:  Nissan recalling 2013 Infiniti JX35 SUVs to fix gas gauges 
DETROIT NEWS -- August 27, 2012

AUGUST 2012 -- Nissan recalling 2013 Infiniti JX35 SUVs to fix gas gauges

Nissan is recalling about 7,800 Infiniti SUVs because the fuel gauges can show gas in the tank when there isn't any.

The recall affects the JX35 from the 2013 model year.

A tube inside the gas tank could be in the wrong place. That could prevent a float from dropping as fuel is used, causing an inaccurate reading on the dashboard fuel gauge.  The SUVs could run out of gas unexpectedly, increasing the risk of a crash, says the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.  Nissan will fix the problem for free. Owners will be notified by mail, and repairs are expected to start Sept. 4.

The SUVs were built from Feb. 15, 2012 through June 22.

AUGUST 2012 -- Nissan is recalling certain model year 2013 Infiniti JX35 vehicles manufactured from February 15, 2012, through June 22, 2012. Due to an assembly issue, the fuel transfer tube may be misrouted inside the fuel tank. As a result, the fuel level float may be prevented from dropping as the fuel is consumed and the fuel guage may read a fuel level higher than actually exists. If the fuel guage does not accurately show when the tank is becoming empty, the vehicle may run out of gas unexpectedly, stalling, and increasing the risk of a crash. Nissan will notify owners, and dealers will inspect and re-route the fuel transfer tube and install a new O-ring, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin September 4, 2012.

NEWS:  Feds checking 2012 Nissan Versa air bag problem 
DETROIT  NEWS -- August 17, 2012

AUGUST 2012 -- U.S. safety regulators are investigating the Nissan Versa subcompact car because an air bag may fail to inflate in crashes.

The probe affects about 100,000 Versas from the 2012 model year.

A cable can get pinched in the steering column and cause the problem, says the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. The pinched cable will set off a warning light on the dashboard.

Such investigations can lead to recalls. The Versa has not been recalled so far.

The safety agency opened the investigation after getting data from Nissan.

NEWS:  Brake complaints prompt fed investigation of 2013 Infiniti JX35, faulty intelligent brake-assist system 
DETROIT  NEWS -- August 2, 2012

AUGUST 2012 -- Federal safety investigators have opened an investigation into whether automatic braking systems in the 2013 Infiniti JX35 may activate the brakes when there is no emergency.

The new safety technology is billed as way to prevent distracted or inattentive drivers from crashes, and is being added to luxury vehicles.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said in a notice posted on its website this week that it is opening a preliminary investigation into 8,000 Infiniti crossovers after receiving two complaints of false application of emergency braking.

The consumers allege that the intelligent brake-assist system inappropriately activated emergency braking autonomically, bringing the vehicles to immediate and complete stops. Both drivers said the incidents occurred on bridges, and suggested the sensor may have halted the vehicles because of the amount of metal in the bridge.

One owner said a new JX35 was purchased in April, and a month later the intelligent "brake assist suddenly stopped my car to a complete stop on a bridge. There were no cars in front of me and luckily the car behind me wasn't driving too close to me or I would have been hit."

The owner was with a 2-year-old daughter at the time of the incident. The owner said after the dealership deactivated the system, the same problem occurred on the same bridge two weeks later.

The owner said the dealership kept the car for 28 days to study it and the software along with technicians from Bosch and Infiniti.

The owner was able to get a full refund for the vehicle, and asserted that the dealership was able to repeat the defect. "I am unsettled knowing this can happen to someone else," the complaint said.

NHTSA doesn't make public the names or locations of the complaints.

A second owner reported leasing a JX in June. The pregnant mother of two said she bought it because of its many safety features.

She asked the dealership to deactivate the feature because "when the vehicle stops, it jerks the seatbelt tight and I don't want that risk to my unborn child unless an accident is actually about to occur."

Just 12 days later, the owner was driving with her 7-year-old when she drove over a bridge and the vehicle came to a "dead stop and all of our seatbelts locked up."

The owner said the dealer responded that "this is a known problem and Infiniti is working on a fix."

The owner said the bridge is the culprit because it has too much metal and sets off the sensor. "I will not drive this vehicle and it jeopardizes the lives of my family and others," she said.

Nissan spokesman Steve Yaeger said the automaker is aware of the two incidents reported to NHTSA, and said they both occurred at the same bridge. He declined to identify the bridge.

"We've got engineers looking at the issue. They are looking at a solution," Yaeger said. He said "the system works" and asserted the issue is not a safety matter. Nissan is not warning drivers to avoid the bridge or issuing a recall to address the problem."

NEWS:  Report: The 7 Most Dangerous Cars on American Roads 
Low scores in rollover and rear-impact in crash testing land these vehicles on the list of most treacherous rides
MSN/Autos.com -- July 10, 2012

JULY 2012 -- Two crossovers, two SUVs, two pickups and the Jeep Wrangler are among the vehicles deemed the most dangerous in America by the business blog 24/7 Wall Street. The website analyzed safety data compiled by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, Consumer Reports, the National Highway Traffic and Safety Administration and J.D. Power.

"The cars with the worst scores most commonly received poor grades in the rollover and rear-impact tests," writes .. 24/7 Wall Street. Those include the Ram 1500, Mazda CX-7 and CX-9, Chevrolet Colorado Crew Cab, Suzuki SX4, Nissan Pathfinder and Jeep Wrangler.

Each of these vehicles received poor or marginal ratings by the IIHS in two of the four categories it uses for crash-test evaluation. The four categories are: a head-on crash traveling at 40 mph; a side-impact crash with a 3,300-pound object hitting the vehicle at 31 mph; a rollover test in which a metal plate strikes the corner of the vehicle until it rolls over; and a rear-impact test, which gauges seat and seat belt protection against whiplash. Additionally, five of the seven most dangerous vehicles were low scorers in the J.D. Power overall Initial Quality Study, scoring three or fewer points out of five.

The IIHS's side-impact test results for the Colorado Crew Cab were particularly grim; the vehicle has received a poor rating in this category each year since 2004. The Jeep Wrangler, too, ranked poor for side impact from 2007 to 2012 and ranked marginal, the second-lowest rating, from 1997 to 2006.

As 24/7 Wall Street notes, poor safety ratings don't necessarily translate to poor sales. All seven of the most treacherous models experienced increased sales in the past year. Writes Wall Street Journal, "In all but one case ... sales grew at least 19% last year."
