Nissan has recalled 1990-1994 Maxima and 1990-1992 Stanza models because a mixture of mud and salt may get trapped between the fuel filler tube and wheel housing, which can cause corrosion. This can lead to fuel leakage and a possible fire. Also, the left rear seat belt retractor is mounted to the wheel housing, and in the event of significant corrosion, the mounting could fail in a vehicle crash. Dealers will inspect these vehicles and corrective action will be taken depending upon the extent of the corrosion.
1992 Nissan Maxima Recalls
Nissan has recalled 1992-1993 Maxima models because in certain underbody impacts, the air bag sensor may activate and send a signal to the air bag, located in the center of the steering wheel, causing the driver's side air bag to inflate when it is not needed. This may result in minor injuries to the driver. A tunnel sensor of different design will be installed on affected vehicles.
