Nissan D22 Navara
Production Years 2010-2013
Passenger airbag inflators
Reasons the product is recalled
The vehicles contain a Takata airbag inflator.
As it gets older, a combination of heat 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.
The hazards to consumers
There is a risk of serious injury or death if an airbag inflator ruptures.
In the event of an airbag inflator rupture, metal fragments could propel out through the airbag cushion towards the vehicle occupants.
What consumers should do
Nissan D22 Navara vehicles are now under 'critical recall’. Consumers should stop driving the vehicle immediately.
Consumers should contact Nissan to arrange the airbag replacement as the vehicle has a heightened risk of causing injury or death. The critical recall category applies to alpha airbags and other airbags specified by Nissan.
Nissan will arrange for your vehicle to be towed to the place of replacement or for a mobile technician to be sent to the vehicle (or some similar arrangement), so that you do not have to drive the vehicle to receive a replacement airbag.
Owners of affected vehicles should contact their local Nissan dealership or Nissan’s head office directly on the website at http://www.nissan.com.au/Forms/Contact-Us or email CSC@nissan.com.au to arrange a replacement airbag inflator free of charge. You are also entitled to request special arrangements, such as a loan or hire car or reimbursement for alternative transportation costs.
Consumers who are unsure whether they are affected can also use Nissan’s VIN look-up tool at www.nissan.com.au/takata or contact Nissan on 1800 035 035 (Option 2, and then Option 2) or the preferred dealer.
