Vehicles Affected: Approximately 1,800 model-year 2017 Nissan Versa cars manufactured between Aug. 1 and Aug. 16, 2016
The Problem: A seam in the fabric section of the side-curtain airbags may tear during deployment, potentially affecting airbag performance and increasing the risk of an injury in a crash necessitating the side-curtain airbags.
The Fix: Dealers will replace the left and right side-curtain airbags for free.
