Nissan on Tuesday recalled more than 130,000 of its Infiniti G35 model sedan and coupes in the United States over concerns about the vehicle's airbag system.

The company said a flaw in wiring on the passenger side could cause the airbag to shut off.

"On a small percentage of the potentially affected vehicles, a harness connector issue could cause the passenger airbag to shut off," the firm said in a statement.

Nissan USA hinted that more recalls could be on the way. "Infiniti will also address this issue in each individual market where these vehicles have been distributed," the firm said.

The affected cars date from 2005 to 2006 G35 sedans and 2005 to 2007 coupes.

"Infiniti will inspect and repair the passenger air bag harness to address this issue."

It is just the latest in a string of recalls to hit the US auto market.

Nissan's fellow Japanese firm Toyota has been hardest hit. It has been forced to recall around 10 million vehicles world wide.

"Infiniti is committed to a high level of safety, customer service and satisfaction and is working with its dealers to promptly address this issue."
