Nissan North America is recalling certain model year 2017 Infiniti QX30 vehicles.

The affected vehicles have a passenger air bag inflator initiator that may fail to ignite during a crash, preventing the air bag from deploying. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 208, "Occupant Crash Protection."

A passenger air bag that fails to deploy in the event of a crash can increase the risk of passenger injury.

Nissan says that 509 Infiniti QX30 vehicles are impacted by this recall—all of which were manufactured between August 11, 2016 and September 27, 2016.

Owners of affected vehicles will be notified by Nissan, and local dealers will replace the passenger air bag assembly, free of charge.

A specific owner notification schedule for this recall has not yet been announced. For further information, vehicle owners can contact Nissan customer service at (800) 647-7261.
