Vehicles Affected: Approximately 1,700 model-year 2019 Infiniti QX50 SUVs

The Problem: In the event of a crash in cold temperatures, the trim cover may separate unexpectedly from the passenger-side knee airbag module instead of splitting at the trim cover tear seam as designed, increasing the risk of injury.

The Fix: Dealers will replace the passenger-side knee airbag module for free.

What Owners Should Do: Infiniti will begin notifying owners Oct. 22. Owners can call the automaker at 800-662-6200, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236 or visit its website to check their vehicle identification number and learn more.
