Nissan Versa Recalls
The passenger frontal air bag assembly is deployed by an inflator which contains propellant that makes the air bag deploy. This propellant may degrade over time, especially when exposed to humidity and temperature cycling. As a result, the inflator may rupture on deployment, which can send metal shrapnel through the air bag, striking vehicle occupants. This could result in serious injury or death.
The front coil springs may corrode and fracture when exposed to road salt in cold weather states that use it. If a spring breaks, it may contact the tire and cause tire failure resulting in loss of vehicle control.
The center console has a trim piece that the driver's shoe and foot can get caught on, causing a possible delay in controlling the vehicle's acceleration or braking.
The engine start/stop button may engage unexpectedly due to sticking inside its housing. The engine could shut off unexpectedly as a result.
In the event of a crash, one or both of the side curtain airbags may not deploy.
On certain vehicles equipped with an automatic transmission, the shifter can be moved out of "Park" without depressing the brake pedal.
The seat belts in the car have sensors that measure belt tension. These sensors are plugged into the wiring of the restraint system. Some wiring connectors where the wiring plugs into the sensor may have been damaged when the vehicle was built. This could cause the air bag light to come on, and may make the restraint system inoperative in an accident.
Brake fluid is kept in a reservoir under the hood. The reservoir has a cap to seal off the fluid, which keeps the fluid from getting any kind of contamination or debris into it. It is mandated that this cap have a brake fluid warning printed onto it. The reservoir caps equipped with this vehicle are missing part of the required warning, and therefore must be replaced.
