We are back at it again, another recall has been announced and I can't tell if it's a good or a bad thing. Think about it for a second, recalls are good because they keep us safe from potential dangers but why are there so many potential dangers? Every week a new recall is coming out whether it's a vehicle, toy, or food product. Are these companies not doing enough to ensure a safe production process and ingredients? Are they cutting corners to save money and therefore putting us in danger?

There are a million and one questions we could ask about the companies and government agencies that are meant to keep us safe but that gets us nowhere. With all that being said, another recall affects thousands of vehicle owners in Michigan.

The US National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has recalled over 84,000 older Nissan vehicles. The recall says to stop driving them immediately due to airbag malfunctions and other safety hazards. The Japanese manufacturer issued recall warnings on the 2002-2006 model year Nissan Sentra, 2002-2004 Nissan Pathfinder, and 2002-2003 Infiniti QX4.

These same models were recalled back in 2020 and if they weren't fixed then you are in danger. Good thing for Nissan owners, the NHTSA says that Nissan dealers are offering free towing, mobile repair, and in some places loaner vehicles. If you own one of the vehicles above don't hesitate to reach out to your Nissan dealer or one nearby to get the necessary maintenance to keep yourself safe on the road.

Here are some other recalls that are relevant right now:
