Vehicles Affected: Approximately 3.2 million model-year 2016-17 Nissan Maxima sedans; 2013-16 Nissan Altima sedans, NV200 cargo vans, Leaf hatchbacks and Sentra sedans; 2013-17 Nissan Pathfinder SUVs; 2014-16 Infiniti QX60 SUVs and Q50 sedans; 2014-17 Nissan Rogue SUVs; 2015-16 Nissan Murano SUVs and Chevrolet City Express cargo vans; and 2013 Infiniti JX35 SUVs

The Problem: The front passenger seat’s occupation classification system may incorrectly classify an adult passenger as a child or classify the seat as empty when it’s occupied, causing the frontal airbag to be turned off and not deploy in a crash, increasing the risk of injury.

The Fix: Dealers will reprogram the air bag control unit and the OCS electronic control unit in Altima, Maxima, Murano, Rogue and Sentra vehicles. The OCS electronic control unit will be replaced in Leaf, NV200, Pathfinder, Q50, JX35, QX60 and City Express vehicles. All work will be done free of charge.

What Owners Should Do: A notification schedule has not yet been provided, but Nissan and Infiniti owners will be notified by Nissan and City Express owners will be notified by GM.
