What are the defects?
Passenger airbag inflator: As it gets older, a combination of high temperatures and humidity can cause the airbag inflator propellant to degrade. If an affected vehicle is involved in a collision triggering the airbag, the metal inflator housing may explode/rupture under too much internal pressure.
What are the hazards?
In the event of an airbag inflator rupture, metal fragments could possibly shoot out, straight through the airbag cushion material towards the vehicle occupants causing serious injury or fatality.
What should consumers do?
Owners of affected vehicles will be contacted by Nissan Australia by letter, email, phone, and SMS advising them to arrange for a replacement airbag inflator free of charge. Alternatively, owners should contact their local Nissan dealership or Nissan head office directly via the website at http://www.nissan.com.au/contact-us or call Nissan on 1800 988 334.
