These vehicles are equipped with certain air bag inflators assembled as part of the passenger frontal air bag modules, and used as original equipment or replacement equipment.

These inflators may rupture due to propellant degradation occurring after long-term exposure to absolute humidity and temperature cycling.

 

CONSEQUENCE:

An inflator rupture may result in metal fragments striking the vehicle occupants resulting in serious injury or death.

 

REMEDY:

Nissan will notify owners, and dealers will replace the passenger frontal air bag inflator, free of charge.

Parts are not currently available.

Owners will be sent an interim notification on July 22, 2016.

A second notice will be mailed when remedy parts are available.
