Nissan Motor Co. is recalling more than 240,000 trucks to fix a problem that could prevent front air bags from deploying if the vehicle becomes involved in a crash. Nissan spokesman Colin Price said the problem was discovered through warranty but no crashes or injuries have been linked to the issue.

In states where road salt is used during the winter, a mixture of snow and the salt could enter a crash zone sensor area, interrupting the signal and potentially preventing the front air bags from deploying.

The recall will affect the Nissan Frontier, Pathfinder, and Xterra 2005 to 2009 models. A total of 242,720 vehicles are part of the recall.
