According to the Japanese automaker Nissan, front passenger airbags in Nissan Navara LE and Navara XE are manufactured by Takata. After long-term exposure to the environment, the air blower can be exposed to moisture, which prevents normal operation as per the design.
Nissan Vietnam will check and replace the air pump for LE and XE versions of Navara pickup trucks.
The repairing duration is 1.3 hours per truck and the programme is scheduled to begin on December 20, 2017, and finish on December 20 next year.
VR also noticed the recall of 652 Honda cars, including Accord CR3 produced in 2012, Accord CR2 manufactured from 2013 to 2016 and Odyssey cars manufactured in the 2015-2017 period.
According to Honda Vietnam, handling the contact surface of the rear-view mirror control switch on the car is not suitable. If used for a long time it can get oxidised, which will result in the rear-view mirror on the car door getting automatically folded when the vehicle is running, parking, or not working when the switch is on. When this happens, the driver’s vision will be affected and may even cause accidents.
Honda vehicles, which are affected by this problem will be checked and repaired free of charge at an estimated time of 12 minutes per car.
The repairing programme will take place from December 25, 2017, to December 24, 2018.
