Vehicles Affected: Approximately 4,300 model-year 2016 Nissan Leaf electric vehicles manufactured between Feb. 24 and March 23, 2016, and Sentra sedans manufactured between Feb. 9 and March 4, 2016
The Problem: The wiring harness connector may disconnect from the dual-stage passenger airbag, preventing the passenger airbag from deploying in a crash and increasing the risk of an injury.
The Fix: Dealers will inspect the wiring harness connector for proper engagement and, if necessary, replace the passenger airbag module and main body harness for free.
What Owners Should Do: Nissan will begin notifying owners later 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.
