Nissan North America is recalling 4,355 2016 model-year Leaf and Sentra cars because the wiring harness connector in these vehicles may disconnect from the dual-stage passenger air bag and lead to air bag malfunction.

The recall, expected to begin later this month, covers Leaf electric vehicles manufactured Feb. 24 to March 23 of this year and Sentra compact cars manufactured Feb. 9 to March 4 of this year, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

“If the wiring harness disconnects, the passenger air bag may not to deploy during a crash, increasing the risk of injury,” NHTSA said on its website.

Nissan dealers will inspect the wiring harness connector for proper engagement and, if necessary, replace the passenger air bag module and main body harness. There will be no charge for this service.

Vehicle owners can reach Nissan customer service at (800) 647-7261.
