Rear Seat Belt Assembly Does Not Adequately Protect Occupant's Head In An Accident

Recall Details

The rear seat belt assembly may not adequately protect the occupant's head, allowing it to contact the D-ring bolt trim cap in an accident. This increases risk of occupant injury. Dealers will install energy absorbing material to the C-Pillar finishers and replace the seat belt bolt and bolt cap free of charge to resolve the concern.

Our Quick Take

The rear seat belt assembly may allow an occupant's head to contact its fastening cap during a collision, increasing risk of occupant injury.

What Should You Do?

Recall repairs on your Nissan must be performed by a Nissan dealership. Nissan will notify known owners of affected vehicles beginning in September, 2017. If you do not receive a notification, but wish to check to see if your vehicle is included, please contact one of your local Nissan dealerships. They will also check for any other incomplete recalls on your vehicle. For best results, be prepared to provide your Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) to the service department consultant you speak with.
