These vehicles are equipped with certain air bag inflators assembled as part of the passenger frontal air bag modules used as original equipment or replacement equipment. In the event of a crash necessitating deployment of the front air bags, 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 front passenger air bag inflators, free of charge. Remedy parts are currently unavailable. Interim notices informing owners of the safety risk were mailed March 20, 2017. Owners will receive a second notice when remedy parts become available. Owners may contact Nissan customer service at 1-800-647-7261.
