Vehicles Affected: Approximately 900 model-year 2013-15 Nissan Altima sedans and Pathfinder SUVs; model-year 2013-14 Sentra sedans; model-year 2013 Infiniti JX35 SUVs; model-year 2014-15 QX60 SUVs; and model-year 2014 QX60 Hybrid SUVs
The Problem: An incorrect occupant classification system control unit, installed during a repair, may incorrectly classify the front passenger seat as empty when it is actually occupied by an adult; this would cause the passenger airbag to be deactivated. Failure of the passenger airbag to deploy during a crash increases the risk of an injury.
The Fix: Dealers will update the occupant classification system software for free.
What Owners Should Do: Nissan will begin notifying owners this month. 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.
