Airbag recall?

Mon Oct 20, 2014 7:38 pm

I just saw on the news that many carmakers, including Nissan are being required by the govt. to recall airbags for affected models. I tried to go to the recall website to see if the Leaf was included, but the site wouldn't load (too busy). Does anyone know if it affects the 2011 Leafs?

Any Leaf impacts from doubling of list announced today? I tried my VIN at the Fed site. It got kicked to Nissan site after delay. The Nissan site says up to date as 5/17.
I expect the extra VINs are not yet in the Nissan list.

Takata changed the propellant formulation in 2008. There should be no 2009 or newer cars affected from any manufacturer.

Re: Takata, there are rumblings in the press that they're going to file for bankruptcy soon.

From Car and Driver
"UPDATE 7/11/2017, 4:00 p.m.: Takata is recalling another 2.7 million airbag inflators in the United States for rupturing. Unlike all the other 100 million inflators recalled globally to date, these inflators contain a moisture-absorbing desiccant. Until now, Takata had said that only non-desiccated inflators were at risk for exploding shrapnel during a crash. These driver’s-side front airbags were manufactured between 2005 and 2012 and were installed on Ford, Mazda, and Nissan vehicles, Takata said in a NHTSA filing. Only inflators with the desiccant calcium sulfate are currently under recall; these inflators still contain the propellant ammonium nitrate. The affected automakers will release separate recalls at a later date."
