Infiniti Recalls

Infiniti Recall Check

Infiniti is the luxury division of Honda. Much like Toyota’s Lexus, it has enjoyed strong support from loyal brand followers globally. Infiniti cars are being refined year after year. Every new entry comes better than its predecessor in every conceivable way. Still, human errors may still occasionally slip into the manufacturing process, despite their best efforts to curtail them. While there have been significant improvements over the years, defects are always something to watch out for. They can still occur, and they can be much more damaging when you least expect them. Any chance of defect cannot be ruled out by a mere glance. Hence, no matter what car you seek, you must make it a habit to run a VIN check. Here at VinCheck.info, a single VIN check is all you need to reveal a full vehicle history report that contains info on recalls and defects.

What are the latest Infiniti recalls?

There were plenty of Infiniti safety recalls these recent years. A few of them that stand out are still ongoing. Take note that not all Infiniti recalls are the same. Some are a simple matter of mislabelling, which can be corrected with ease. Others, however, are far more serious manufacturing flaws that would need intensive repair. The item in question may even be passed beyond the point of repair and will require an immediate replacement.

Is my Infiniti affected by the Takata Airbag Recall?

Infiniti, just like its parent company, Nissan, is also mentioned as part of the Takata airbag recall. The Takata Airbag Recall is the largest US recall to date. About 40 million vehicles are said to be part of this ongoing recall. As it turns out, the airbags supplied by Takata are defective and can compromise the safety of vehicle occupants. The dangerous combination of extreme heat and humidity can, over time, erode the quality of these airbags so much that when they deploy, they may explode. Anyone within range may sustain serious injury or even death. Below are the Infiniti models from 2001 – 2010 that are part of Takata recall.

Model Model Years Covered
Infiniti I302001
Infiniti QX42002 – 2003

Why should I run an Infiniti Recall Check?

Owners are responsible for their safety. The seller, too, has a legal obligation to be faithful to their selling points and sell cars that will not put the lives of others at serious risk. Third parties may also benefit if there is a need to know the safety quality of a car.

  1. Check for Infiniti safety defects. At the start of 2020, over 300,000 Nissan and Infiniti vehicles were added as part of the recall for defective Takata airbags. Half of the included models for this follow-up belong to Infiniti. 
  2. Check for Infiniti compliance to federal safety standards. Perform in-depth diagnostics on your car. You can never be sure since you can’t 100% check all important spots simply by looking at and testing the car. Saves you the trouble of returning to a repair shop. 
  3. Ensure buyer confidence. You need to go beyond mere verbal claims. Walk the talk. A combination of car demonstration and written proof can cement a car buyer’s trust. It helps substantiate claims without the need for making up excuses. 
  4. Resolve issues promptly. Do not take Infiniti recalls lightly. Far from being annoying notifications, it is something that you should seriously consider for personal safety.
