Body, Interior & Misc., March 25, 2014

RepairPal Expert Overview:

The airbag system uses a sensor in the front passenger seat to detect if the seat is occupied by an adult. The affected vehicles are being recalled because this sensor, part of the occupant classification system (OCS), may incorrectly identify the passenger seat as empty when it is actually occupied by an adult. When the passenger seat is determined to be empty, the passenger airbag is disabled. Failure of the passenger airbag to properly deploy when necessary would increase the risk of injury to someone seated in the passenger seat in the event of an accident. Dealers will update the OCS software to correct this concern.

For Models: Nissan Frontier

RepairPal Expert Overview:

Airbags use a chemical reaction contained in an inflator module to create the pressure necessary to inflate the bags when deployment is required. These vehicles are being recalled because the front passenger airbag inflator may produce excessive internal pressure when deployed. As a result, the inflator module could rupture, causing metal fragments to strike vehicle occupants. Dealers will inspect and replace any defective passenger front airbag inflator modules found.

Drive Train, March 15, 2013

RepairPal Expert Overview:

Vehicles equipped with a column mounted gear shift lever are being recalled because the shift indicator could indicate the wrong gear position. This is because the gear selector plate lock clip may have been installed incorrectly and will not hold its position due to normal road vibration. If the display is incorrect, the operator may think the vehicle is secured in Park when it is not. As a result the vehicle could roll unexpectedly, increasing the risk of personal injury or a crash. Nissan dealers will check and correct the installation of the transmission lever gear selector plate lock clip to correct this concern.
