Sensors that determine if a passenger is sitting in a seat may not have met specifications and do not detect a rider, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) said. If a crash occurs and no passenger is detected, the air bag ma hermes y not deploy.
The recall is expected to begin next month. hermes headquarters in Nashville, Tennessee, said there have been no reports of injuries or crashes related to this problem.
Nissan determined a recall should be conducted on February 21, two months after the automaker noticed an increasing number of warranty claims from hermes owners who said their airbag detection dashboard warning was lit, according to documents filed with the NHTSA.
Nissan is also recalling 482 Sentras in the United States, Canada and Puerto Rico, made from September 11 to October 4 last year because fuel tanks were not properly sealed. This may lead to a smal hermes l leak of gasoline when the tanks are filled, Nissan told the NHTSA.
