Recall Alert: Nissan NV200, Chevrolet City Express Cargo Vans


Vehicles Affected: Approximately 5,000 model-year 2013-16 Nissan NV200 cargo vans and 2015-16 Chevrolet City Express cargo vans (GM's rebadged version of the NV200)

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 replace the OCS electronic control unit free of charge.

What Owners Should Do: A notification schedule has not yet been provided, but Nissan owners will be notified by Nissan and City Express owners will be notified by GM. For more info, owners may call Nissan at 800-867-7669 or Chevrolet at 800-222-1020; they may also call the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's hotline at 888-327-4236 or go to
