Today, we’ll be going over some information on a current Nissan recall and we hope that you will contact us as soon as possible so we can get you back on the road safely.
Yesterday, Nissan and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration issued a recall yesterday for 989,701 vehicles in the United States for an issue with the passenger side airbag systems. The models included in the recall are 2013 and 2014 model years of Altima, Leaf, Pathfinder, and Sentra as well as the 2013 NV200 taxis. The issue is located in the occupant classification system which determines, via weight, whether a passenger is present or not. If this mechanism fails to detect a passenger, the passenger side airbag may deactivate and therefore fail to deploy in the event of an accident.
Official notification from Nissan will be delivered mid next month, but every Nissan dealership will be able to update your car’s software, free of charge, so please don’t hesitate to contact our service center and get your car in to fix this very important issue!
