Affected vehicles include model-year 2008-11 Armada, Pathfinder and Xterra SUVs and Frontier and Titan pickup trucks, as well as model-year 2008-09 Quest minivans. Due to an issue with production, the resin emblem attached to the airbag module cover may crack over time. The shattered emblem could detach and strike occupants in the event of a crash, increasing the risk of injury.

The remedy is still under development at this time, but Nissan will begin notifying owners of the issue April 10. Those with further questions meanwhile can contact the automaker at 800-867-7669 (Nissan’s number for this recall is PC944/5/6/7/8/9), the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236, or visit its website to check your vehicle identification number and learn more.
