In the event of a crash necessitating deployment of the passenger Frontal Air Bag, these passenger Air Bag Inflators may explode due to propellant degradation occurring after long-term exposure to absolute humidity and temperature cycling.

According to the NHTSA, an Inflator explosion may result in sharp metal fragments striking the driver or other occupants resulting in serious injury or death.

What to do next? Nissan will notify registered owners, and dealers will replace the passenger frontal air bag inflator, free of charge. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule. Owners may contact Nissan customer service at 1-800-647-7261.
