Nissan Motor Co (Australia) Pty Ltd — Nissan D22 Navara MY2008-2012 and Y61 Patrol MY2009-2012 - extended recall
What are the defects?
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 that a defective airbag inflator ruptures, metal fragments may propel out through the airbag cushion towards the vehicle occupants causing serious injury or fatality.
What should consumers do?
Due to parts availability constraints to service the D22 Navara expansion vehicles, the recall commencement dates are: 15 November 2019 for Northern Territroy, Queensland and Western Australia; and 20 January 2020 for the remaining States and Territory.
When the recall is launched, owners of affected vehicles should contact their local Nissan dealership or Nissan head office directly via the website at https://www.nissan.com.au/contact-us to arrange for a replacement airbag inflator free of charge.
Consumers who are unsure whether they are affected, have questions or concerns or wish to discuss additional services that may be available to consumers, can contact Nissan on 1800 988 334 or enquire at their local Nissan Dealer.
