Vehicles Affected: Approximately 2,310 model-year 2014 versions of the Nissan Pathfinder crossover; only vehicles with almond-colored interiors built between July 25 and Sept. 5, 2013, are affected.
The Problem: An improperly manufactured seam on the instrument panel could cause the front passenger airbag to deploy incorrectly, increasing the risk of injury.
The Fix: Dealers will inspect and replace the affected instrument panel assemblies for free.
What Owners Should Do: Nissan will notify owners in early November. Owners can call Nissan at 800-647-7261 or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration at 888-327-4236 for more information.
