Nissan Maxima Recalls
The passenger frontal air bag may not deploy as needed in a crash due to the installation of an improper control unit for the Occupant Classification System (OCS). Because of this, the OCS may not properly detect an adult in the passenger front seat, instead classifying the passenger as a child. When the OCS does this, it prevents the passenger frontal air bag from deploying, attempting to protect child occupants. This would increase risk of injury to adult passengers.
Brake fluid may leak from an anti-lock brake actuator pump, resulting in a fire hazard, and a possible loss of braking power. This could result in an accident.
The passenger frontal air bag may fail to deploy in an accident. This can occur due to the passenger seat occupant classification system not being properly calibrated, and may not detect a passenger present in the seat as appropriate. This would increase risk of occupant injury in an accident.
The brake system may not stop the vehicle effectively, or may operate erratically during events which trigger the anti-lock brake system or vehicle dynamic control system. This can cause extended stopping distances or loss of vehicle control, resulting in an accident.
The bolts that secure the front brake calipers may not be tightened properly. This may result in loss of braking ability.
A fuel leak may occur near the fuel tank where the fuel sending unit mounts to the fuel tank. The leak may cause an odor and fire hazard.
Certain vehicles are being recalled because the passenger airbag inflator may rupture upon deployment. Vehicle occupants could be struck by metal fragments resulting in personal injury.
The passenger front airbag inflator could rupture when deployed, allowing metal fragments to strike vehicle occupants and increasing the risk of personal injury.
