2002 Nissan Pathfinder 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.
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.
In areas where winter road salt is used, rust may form on the strut tower. The strut housing may crack, leading to a grinding noise and increased steering effort. In certain cases, the steering column could break, resulting in a loss of steering control, increasing the risk of a crash.
Airbag and inflator may injure passenger in the event of a crash.
