If the occupant’s head contacts the D-ring bolt trim cap during a crash, there is an increased risk of injury.
Nissan North America, Inc. (Nissan) is recalling certain 2016-2017 Nissan Titan Crew Cab and Titan XD Crew Cab vehicles. In the event of a crash, the rear seatbelt assembly may not adequately protect the occupant’s head, allowing it to contact the D-ring bolt trim cap. As such, these vehicles fail to conform to Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 201, “Occupant Protection in Interior Impact.”
An engine stall can increase the risk of a crash.
An inflator rupture may result in metal fragments striking the driver or other occupants resulting in serious injury or death.
The affected vehicles have a driver frontal air bag inflator that may rupture due to propellant degradation occurring after long-term exposure to moderate absolute humidity, temperatures, and temperature cycling.
In the event of a crash, if the passenger frontal air bag does not deploy as intended, it can increase the risk of injury.
