41,941. That’s the number of Nissan Navaras that have just been recalled to replace a dodgy and downright dangerous airbag inflator that can seriously do more harm than good.
It’s the same Takata airbag recall which is affecting up to 100,000,000 vehicles globally. When an airbag is deployed in a crash, the inflator mechanism can explode – sending metal fragments flying right into the faces and bodies of those in the car.
It acts like a kind of grenade, and there are already deaths that are directly linked to these awful airbags. Along with over 40,000 Tiida passenger airbags, the passenger airbags of D40 Navaras are now on the list to get recalled.
