Previously, numerous D22 Navaras had already been recalled for the airbag program but now a further 41,373 Navaras will also be recalled.
The affected models were built in Thailand between 2008 and 2014, and wear Vehicle Identification Numbers (VIN) beginning with “MNT”.
As with other Takata recalls, the problem centres around the airbag inflator casing, which can rupture during airbag deployment.
If this occurs, metal fragments from the casing could potentially cause injury or even death to the vehicle’s occupants.
Nissan Australia said it is committed to the safety, service and satisfaction of its customers, and advised Narava owners that they would be invited to participate in the recall once parts become available.
The latest recall brings the total number of Nissans affected by the Takata fiasco in Australia to 223,520.
Nissan will attempt to contact affected owners shortly, but any owner wishing to learn more about the latest round of recalls should contact their local dealer, visit Nissan’s website or phone Nissan on 1800 988 334.
