Vehicles Affected: Approximately 800 model-year 2013-15 Nissan Altima sedans manufactured between Jan. 3 and July 29, 2015; model-year 2016 Maxima sedans manufactured between June 4 and Aug. 19, 2015; and model-year 2015-16 Rogue SUVs manufactured between Oct. 14, 2014, and Aug. 12, 2016
The Problem: An incorrect occupant classification system electronic control unit may have been installed in the front passenger seat, and the wrong combination of the unit and the seat may misclassify the front passenger seat occupant. If this happens, the airbag may deploy incorrectly in a crash, increasing the risk of an injury.
The Fix: Dealers will replace the electronic control unit and update the occupant classification system for free.
What Owners Should Do: Nissan will begin notifying owners Feb. 12. Owners can call the automaker at 800-647-7261, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236 or go to www.safercar.gov for more info.
