Nissan is recalling 4,038 2010 model year Pathfinder and Xterra SUVs as well as Frontier small pickups due to faulty fasteners in the airbag module and steering shaft. These two separate areas can lead to two different issues.
In the event of a crash, the front passenger airbag could deploy incorrectly. The fasteners in the steering column could come loose during driving and increase the risk of a crash.
Nissan will begin alerting customers in April. Owners can contact Nissan at 800-647-7261 or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s hot line at 888-327-4236.
