Nissan Maxima Recall Details

RepairPal Expert Overview on December 19, 2016

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.
