Nissan recalls more than 220,000 vehicles over faulty air bag, bringing total recall to 664K

NEW YORK, N.Y. - Nissan is recalling more than 226,000 additional vehicles over a defective air bag that has affected much of the global auto industry.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said Saturday that Nissan North America Inc. is recalling certain lines of its Infiniti, Maxima, Pathfinder and Sentra cars for the model years 2002 to 2004.

It had previously announced a recall of more than 438,000 vehicles.

The move is prompted by faulty air bags that have been blamed for the recall of millions of cars in recent years, including those made by BMW, Chrysler, Ford, Honda, Mazda and Toyota.

The air bags systems were made by Tokyo-based Takata Corp. The air bag inflators can rupture, causing metal fragments to fly out when the air bags are deployed. That can potentially cause serious injuries.
