Summary:

Remedy:
      Nissan will notify owners, and dealers will install a new jumper harness, and replace the side impact satellite sensors, free of charge. Remedy parts are currently unavailable. Interim notices informing owners of the safety risk were mailed May 1, 2017. Owners will receive a second notice when remedy parts become available.
