Remedy Owners of all vehicles on which a defective air bag may have been installed either as original equipment, or as a replacement, will be notified. Dealers will inspect vehicles, and where a defective air bag inflator is identified, the inflator will be replaced, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin during July 2013. Owners may contact Nissan Customer Service at 1-800-647-7261.
Summary Nissan is recalling certain model year 2001-2003 Maxima, Pathfinder, and Infiniti I35; model year 2002-2003 Infiniti QX4; and model year 2003 Infiniti FX35 and FX45 and possibly certain Sentra vehicles to address a safety defect in the passenger side frontal air bag which may produce excessive internal pressure causing the inflator to rupture upon deployment of the air bag. This recall addresses both the passenger side frontal air bags that were originally installed in the vehicles, as well as replacement air bags that may have been installed as replacement service parts. A replacement air bag may have been installed, as one example, if a vehicle had been in a crash necessitating the replacement of the passenger side frontal air bag.
Summary On certain sport utility vehicles, the bolts that attach the propeller (drive) shaft to the transaxle and differential may not have been adequately tightened. If the bolts come loose, the propeller shaft may separate from the vehicle increasing the risk of a crash.
Summary On certain sport utility vehicles, the front brake caliper mounting bolts may not be adequately tightened. This could result in one or both of the caliper mounting bolts loosening. If this occurs, it would allow the caliper to rotate or separate from its mounting bracket. This could cause the brake to fail, reducing the vehicle's ability to stop. It could also damage the wheel, causing the tire to go flat. Either one of these conditions could result in a crash.
