Passenger Front Air Bag Does Not Deploy In An Accident

The occupant classification system may malfunction, resulting in the front passenger air bag not deploying when needed in an accident. Dealers will update the system software free of charge to resolve the concern.

Loss of Steering Control

A problem with the steering column may cause a failure in the upper steering bearing, which can lead to increased play in the steering wheel and a loss of vehicle control, either of which can result in an unsafe driving condition. Dealers will replace affected steering wheel column parts free of charge.

Hood Release Cable

In certain vehicles the hood release cable may have been installed incorrectly, as a result the latch may not fully engage, leaving the secondary latch in the open position with the hood is closed. If the primary hood latch is released and the secondary latch fails while driving the hood could open unexpectedly, blocking the driver's vision and increasing the risk of a crash. To correct this concern dealers will modify the angle of the hood release mechanism to provide additional length to the release cable.

The 2008 model I purchased was a little nicer than t...
My Infiniti QX56 gives me problems when driving over potholes, bumps, uneven roadways -- the steering wheel pulls to the right or just shakes out of my hands. I've taken it to the dealership 3 times for this problem and they cannot seem to figure out what's wrong. They told me that it was b/c I did not have enough air in my tires (first visit)-- WRONG; front end needed aligning (second visit)...
