***** Campaign Summary *****

INFINITI has notified the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) that it will conduct a Voluntary Safety Recall Campaign on specific MY2011-12 QX56 vehicles to replace the air bag inflator with a new Daicel supplied inflator or module kit.

Due to a manufacturing process anomaly, these inflators may not function properly or may potentially rupture during deployment.  Overloading of the propellant, or asymmetric loading of the propellant, may lead to over-pressurization of the inflator housing during deployment. Over-pressurization of the inflator housing in the event of a crash may result in an inflator rupture.  An inflator rupture may cause metal fragments to pass through the air bag and into the vehicle interior at high speed, which may result in injury or death to vehicle occupants.   INFINITI is proactively conducting this recall out of an abundance of caution, and is not aware of any field incidents related to this condition.

NOTE:  This issue is not related to the previous Takata air bag recalls.  This is a unique manufacturing quality control issue with an unrelated root-cause, but similar outcome.

 

***** What Retailers Should Do *****

  1. Verify if vehicles are affected by this Voluntary Safety Recall Campaign using Service Comm or DBS National Service History – Open Campaign D. R20A6
  1. Retailers must not sell, lease, trade, rent or loan any vehicles in retailer inventory affected by this recall campaign until after the vehicle has been repaired.
  1. Retailers should use ITB20-015 to remedy any vehicles subject to this campaign.
  1. Once repaired, the service department should submit the applicable warranty claim for the action performed so it can be closed on SERVICE COMM.

  1. Percentage of Vehicles Estimated to Actually Contain the Defect:

1%[1]

To date, Nissan is not aware of any confirmed field incidents attributable to the subject condition in vehicles equipped with PSDI-5D inflators.

 

  1. Description of the Defect:

Due to a manufacturing process issue at the Takata Monclova, Mexico plant, the driver front air bag inflator may not function properly or may rupture during deployment, increasing the risk of injury.  Based on the supplier’s investigation, the issue may be caused by overloading of the propellant or asymmetric loading of the propellant during manufacturing.  Over-pressurization of the inflator housing in the event of a crash may result in an inflator rupture.  An inflator rupture may cause metal fragments to pass through the air bag and into the vehicle interior at high speed, which may result in injury or death to vehicle occupants.

 

  1. Chronology of Principal Events:

Nissan will supplement this chronology of principal events.

 

Description of Corrective Action:

Nissan will issue an owner notification to vehicle owners by first class mail within 60 days of this letter. Dealers will be notified on March 31, 2020. Dealers will replace the front driver air bag inflator with a new (Daicel) supplied inflator or module kit at no cost to owners for parts or labor.

Your office will be provided with the Part 577 owner notification.

 

  1. Copy of Notices:

Copies of all notices will be provided to NHTSA as they become available.

Re: Reporting Under the “Other” Category in Takata Campaigns ACRO 48(b)

 

Dear Mr. Neff:

Nissan has notified NHTSA of its intent to expand the use of the “other” category in reporting completions on quarterly reports pursuant to Paragraph 47 in the Third Amendment to the Coordinated Remedy Order (“ACRO”).  The expansion applies to recall 20V-008.  This communication provides an explanation as to financial resources saved and reallocation of such resources associated with the use of “Other” category.

In short, Nissan has not realized net financial savings associated with the use of “Other” category.  Nissan has contracted with Harbor Business Partners, LLC (Harbor) to review un-remedied recall populations to assess the number of vehicles in operation and filter out vehicles determined to be no longer in use.  Nissan’s primary objective in contracting with Harbor is not cost savings at all; but, rather, to gain a better understanding of the actual vehicles in operation that need to be recalled, and then to focus all its efforts to reach that population, rather than attempting to notify owners of vehicles that are not in operation.

While the cost of this activity is overall more expensive than the typical Part 577 recall notifications and certain other outreach efforts to the VINs in the “Other” category; Nissan firmly believes it is very important to the overriding goal of remedying vehicles and eliminating the hazards associated with the recalled Takata inflators by allowing Nissan to focus its outreach specifically where it has the most potential to have positive impact.  To that end, Nissan thanks the agency staff for their suggestion that un-remedied vehicle data be filtered to ascertain which vehicles subject to the Takata recalls remain in use.

Derek Latta

Associate Administrator for Enforcement

Attn: Recall Management Division (NVS-215)
Room W48-302
1200 New Jersey Avenue, SE
Washington, D.C. 20590

 

Dear Mr. Giuseppe:

In accordance with the Third Amendment to the Coordinated Remedy Order (“ACRO”), paragraphs 47 and 48, this report amends Defect Information Report 20V-008 to notify NHTSA of Nissan’s intention to utilize the “Other” category in reporting Takata recall completion rates in quarterly reports to NHTSA and bi-weekly completion reports to NHTSA and the Takata Monitor.  Additionally, Nissan will initiate reporting of vehicles determined to be removed due to scrap, theft and export, in accordance with Paragraph 45.  Nissan will implement the use of the “Total Removed” categories (Scrapped, Stolen, Exported, Other) beginning with the May 8, 2020 dashboard submission and shortly thereafter in the Second Quarter 2020 quarterly report to NHTSA.  “Total Removed” vehicles are not treated as remedied, but rather are removed from the vehicle population for purposes of calculating remedy completion under Paragraph 35 of the ACRO.

Out of an abundance of caution and consistent with Paragraph 48(d) of the ACRO, all unremedied vehicles (including those that Nissan believes no longer exist) that were subject to 20V-008 will remain active, or “live,” across Nissan’s data systems such that any search of VINs within the “Total Removed” category will return an open recall status.

While the initially reported number of potentially affected vehicles subject to 20V-008 remains the same (307,962), Nissan has contracted with Harbor Business Partners, LLC (Harbor) to review the entire un-remedied recall population and determine each vehicle’s in/out of service status.  The baseline result of this effort is as follows:

Removed Category Vehicle Count
Scrapped 40,436
Stolen 149
Exported 2,182
Other 47,132

 

Nissan’s use of these reporting criteria will more accurately reflect vehicles still in active service and will enable Nissan to focus its outreach effort on those vehicles that it believes are potentially still in existence, as opposed to vehicles that are no longer on the road.

All subsequent changes to overall counts in the “Total Removed” categories will be reflected in the next six (6) consecutive quarters of reporting.

As a condition of the ACRO, all affected vehicles will remain active across Nissan’s data systems such that any search of “Other” removed VINs will return an open recall status. For this reason, the number of potentially involved vehicles in this report will remain the same. However, for reference, initial counts of vehicles in the “Other” reporting category are indicated in the amended Part 573 letter submitted on April 29, 2020. Note that these counts are current as of the first calendar quarter 2020. Future changes to overall Total Removed counts, including “Other,” will be reflected in quarterly reporting.

 

According to Takata Defect Report 20E-001, Takata has determined that a defect related to motor vehicle safety may arise in some of the subject non-desiccated ammonium nitrate inflators due to propellant degradation occurring after prolonged exposure to high absolute humidity, high temperatures and high temperature cycling.  Activation of a non-desiccated ammonium nitrate inflator with degraded propellant may result in an inflator rupture. An inflator rupture may cause metal fragments to pass through the air bag and into the vehicle interior at high speed, which may result in injury or death to vehicle occupants.

 

  1. Chronology of Principal Events:

January 2, 2020 – As specified in the Amended Takata Consent Order, Takata submitted Defect Information Report 20E-001.

 

January 2, 2020 – Based on the information in the Takata Defect Information Report and out of abundance of caution, Nissan decided to conduct a safety recall on the subject vehicles in accordance with the schedule set forth in Paragraph 33 of the Third Amendment to The Coordinated Remedy Order.

 

  1. Description of Corrective Action:

Dealers will be notified on January 15, 2020.  Nissan will begin notifying all affected vehicle owners by first class mail beginning February 10, 2020.  The front passenger air bag inflators will be replaced with new desiccated inflators manufactured by a different supplier, at no cost to owners for parts or labor.

 

After Part 577 notification is completed, additional outreach efforts will be undertaken consistent with previous Takata Monitor recommendations.

 

Your office will be provided with the final Part 577 owner notification.  Nissan will include a statement in the Part 577 owner notification concerning reimbursement for the cost of obtaining a pre-notification remedy.

 

  1. Copy of Notices:

Copies of all notices will be provided to NHTSA and Takata Monitor as they become available.

[1] The estimated percentage of vehicles involved with defect is unknown, 1% is used here because submission within NHTSA’s safety portal will not allow a non‐numeric value.

  1. Percentage of Vehicles Estimated to Actually Contain the Defect:

1%[1]

To date, Nissan is not aware of any confirmed field incidents attributable to the subject condition in vehicles equipped with PSDI-5D inflators.

 

  1. Description of the Defect:

Due to a manufacturing process issue at the Takata Monclova, Mexico plant, the driver front air bag inflator may not function properly or may rupture during deployment, increasing the risk of injury.  Based on the supplier’s investigation, the issue may be caused by overloading of the propellant or asymmetric loading of the propellant during manufacturing.  Over-pressurization of the inflator housing in the event of a crash may result in an inflator rupture.  An inflator rupture may cause metal fragments to pass through the air bag and into the vehicle interior at high speed, which may result in injury or death to vehicle occupants.

 

  1. Chronology of Principal Events:

April 26, 2018 – Nissan received notification from the airbag inflator supplier about a field incident involving a driver airbag inflator rupture in another OEM’s vehicle.  The supplier informed Nissan that the incident inflator was a PSDI-5D type manufactured at the same facility as PSDI-5D type inflators supplied to Nissan.  The supplier further informed Nissan that the root-cause of the incident inflator rupture was under investigation in conjunction with NHTSA and the other OEM.  Nissan confirmed it had no reports of   rupture incidents for the subject inflators.  Nissan requested the supplier to conduct a thorough investigation to determine any adverse quality effects on Nissan’s inflators and to notify Nissan immediately of any findings relevant to subject inflators supplied to Nissan and to provide periodic investigation updates.

 

May 2018 through early March 2019 – The supplier’s root-cause investigation continued into the inflator rupture incident involving the other OEM and potential impact to inflators supplied to NissanNissan continued to monitor the field and did not identify any subject inflator rupture incidents.  On March 6, 2019, the other OEM decided to conduct a safety recall of supplier’s PSDI-5D inflators in its vehicles.

 

March 8, 2019 – The supplier notified Nissan of the other OEM’s safety recall determination and shared that its investigation pointed toward a manufacturing process anomaly specific to the other OEM’s affected population.  The supplier confirmed the other OEM incident inflator was manufactured on a different production line from inflators supplied to Nissan and design differences between the two OEM’s subject inflators.  The supplier also provided an update on the healthy parts field collection and testing of subject inflators supplied to Nissan, which had found no ruptures or abnormal deployments.  The supplier committed to continue to investigate any potential effects on inflators supplied to Nissan.

 

March 11, 2019 – Nissan discussed the supplier’s investigation with NHTSA to understand the other OEM’s determination with respect to inflators in its vehicles and also to consider plans for evaluating any potential field risk to the subject inflators supplied to Nissan.

 

March 28, 2019 – The supplier reported that testing of additional subject inflators recovered from Nissan vehicles again found no ruptures or abnormal deployments.  The supplier advised that it was reviewing its manufacturing process records for Nissan inflators to ensure that no manufacturing process anomalies occurred.

 

July 9, 2019 – The supplier provided an investigation update into potential manufacturing process anomalies, specifically the propellant loading process.  Because process control records could not conclusively rule out potential anomalies, a second healthy parts collection and testing of specific inflators was necessary to investigate any potential propellant loading anomalies.

 

Mid-July 2019 through early September 2019 – The supplier provided Nissan with specific inflator serial numbers for collection. Nissan matched the inflators to VINs and launched a parts collection activity on September 6, 2019.

 

October 2019 – The supplier presented materials to the affected OEM community and to NHTSA regarding its investigation and findings into the safety and/or service life of desiccated PSAN inflators.  It was requested that the supplier continue its investigation into the potential impact of manufacturing anomalies.

 

Mid-March 2020 – The supplier provided Nissan with investigation results from a limited number of field parts returned through the second parts collection activity.   The supplier concluded the collected inflators did not exhibit evidence of propellant being overloaded or asymmetrically loaded.

 

March 23, 2020 – Because Nissan was unable to rule out the potential for manufacturing process anomalies in the subject inflators, out of an abundance of caution, Nissan decided to conduct a voluntary recall to proactively replace the subject inflators.  Nissan is not aware of any incidents of rupture or abnormal deployment of the subject inflators.

 

  1. Description of Corrective Action:

Nissan will issue an owner notification to vehicle owners by first class mail beginning May 4, 2020. Dealers were notified on March 31, 2020. Dealers will replace the front driver air bag inflator with a new (Daicel) supplied inflator or module kit at no cost to owners for parts or labor.

 

Your office will be provided with the Part 577 owner notification.

 

  1. Copy of Notices:

Copies of all notices will be provided to NHTSA as they become available.
