Body, Interior & Misc., March 20, 2006
RepairPal Expert Overview
Our Quick Take:
In the event of a frontal crash, the belt portion of the rear outboard seat belt may be damaged.
What Should You Do?
Nissan will notify owners of affected vehicles beginning March 20, 2006. If you notice damage to a rear outboard seat belt, or you don't receive notification and you feel you should have, please contact your dealer. It's helpful to have your vehicle identification number (VIN) when you call.
In certain types of frontal crashes, the belt portion of the rear outboard seat belt may contact the rear seat back hinge. The belt can be cut by the sharp edge of the hinge. If the belt were to completely separate, it can increase the risk of injury to the seat occupant. Dealers will install protectors over the affected belt portion of the rear belts.
