What are the defects?
The propellant tablets in some of the subject inflators may experience an alteration over time, which could potentially lead to over-aggressive combustion in the event of an air bag deployment. Depending on the circumstances, this potential condition could create excessive internal pressure when the air bag is deployed, which could result in the body of the inflator rupturing upon deployment.
What are the hazards?
Abnormal front driver airbag deployment or metal fragment scatter may pose a hazard to the occupants of the vehicle.
What should consumers do?
Once parts availability is confirmed, owners of vehicles within the affected VIN range will be advised to contact their Nissan Dealer to arrange for replacement of the driver airbag inflator. The replacement will be at no cost to owners.
