2013 Nissan Sentra Recall Details

RepairPal Expert Overview on April 26, 2016

The passenger frontal air bag may deploy when it should be deactivated with a child seat installed in the passenger front seat. This is due to a seat bracket becoming deformed when installing the child seat's child restraint system. The deformed bracket will send improper information to the occupant classification system which would allow the air bag to remain powered in an accident. This could result in increased risk of injury to the child in the seat.
