RECALL DATE: 2017-07-19
Nissan North America, Inc. (Nissan) is recalling certain 2007-2011 Versa Sedan and 2007-2012 Versa Hatchback vehicles. 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.
An inflator rupture may result in metal fragments striking the driver or other occupants resulting in serious injury or death.
Nissan will notify owners, and dealers will replace the subject inflator with a new one manufactured by a different supplier, free of charge. Remedy parts are not currently available. An interim owner notification letter was set September 20, 2017. A second letter will be sent when remedy parts are available. Owners may contact Nissan customer service at 1-800-647-7261.
