NEWS: Nissan is recalling certain 2001-2003 Maxima, Pathfinder, and Infiniti I35; 2002-2003 Infiniti QX4; and 2003 Infiniti FX35 and FX45 and possibly certain Sentra vehicles
Report Receipt Date: APR 12, 2013 
NHTSA Campaign Number: 13V136000 
Component(s): AIR BAGS 
Potential Number of Units Affected: 265,362 

APRIL 2013 -- 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. In the event of a crash necessitating deployment of the passenger's frontal air bag, the inflator could rupture with metal fragments striking and potentially seriously injuring the passenger seat occupant or other occupants. 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 manufacturer has not yet provided the agency with a notification schedule. Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.

NEWS:  Nissan is recalling certain 2011-2012 Juke, Infiniti QX and Infiniti M vehicles

FEBRUARY  2012 -- Nissan is recalling certain model year 2011-2012 Juke, Infiniti QX and Infiniti M vehicles. The fuel pressure sensors may not have been tightened to the correct specification. As a result, the fuel pressure sensor may loosen due to heat and vibration causing fuel to leak. Fuel may leak from the pressure sensor, increasing the risk of a fire. Nissan will notify owners, and dealers will replace the fuel pressure sensors, as necessary, free of charge. The safety recall is expected to begin on March 19, 2012.    12V-069

MORE RECALL INFO: 


APRIL 2011 -- Nissan Is Recalling Certain Model Year 1996-2004 Pathfinder and Model Year 1997-2003 Infiniti QX4 vehicles originally sold, or currently registered in the District of Columbia, Connecticut, Delaware, Iowa, Illinois, Indiana, Massachusetts, Maine, Maryland, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, Washington D.C., West Virginia and Wisconsin. In areas of the country in which heavy concentrations of road salt are used, a mixture of snow/water and salt may enter an assembly location hole in the upper strut housing, causing water to collect at the mating surface of the strut housing panel and the inner hood ledge assembly. Over time, thissnow/water and salt intrusion may result in corrosion of the strut tower housing in some subject vehicles. The strut housing may crack and pull away from the inner hood ledge assembly. This may lead to grinding noises, increased steering effort, and possibly the steering column to break, resulting in the loss of steering control, which could result in a crash. Nissan will inspect the strut housing and repair the vehicles as necessary free of charge. An interim notification letter to owners will be mailed on or before May 16, 2011.   11V-244

SEPTEMBER 2007 -- Nissan is recalling 372,250 MY 1997-2001 Pathfinder and MY 1997-2001 Infiniti QX4 vehicles. Vehicles originally sold in or currently registered in the states of Connecticut, Delaware, Iowa, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Massachusetts, Maine, Maryland, Michigan, Minnesota, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Tennessee, Vermont, Virginia, West Virginia, Wisconsin and the District of Columbia. During the coating process of the fuel filler tube assembly, a sufficient coating may not have been applied at the lower mounting bracket. This could result in an opening in the coating which can allow water to enter and make contact with the bare metal of the tube. This may result in surface rust but not perforation of the tube. However, in those areas of the country which use heavy concentrations of road salt in the winter, if a mixture of snow/water and salt makes contact with the bare metal, corrosion may occur to a degree which results in perforation of the tube. In this case fuel leakage may occur when filling the tank. Fuel leakage, in the presence of an ignition source, could result in a fire. Dealers will replace the fuel filler tube assembly with a new one with an improved coating process. The recall is expected to begin on or about November 26, 2007. 07V435
