    2001 Nissan Maxima Recalls

    NHTSA Campaign ID #

    13V136000

    Recall Date

    2013-04-12

    Summary

    Nissan is recalling certain model year 2001-2003 Maxima and Pathfinder; model year 2001 Infiniti I30; model year 2002-2003 Infiniti I35 and Infiniti QX4; model year 2003 Infiniti FX35 and FX45; and model year 2002-2003 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.

    Consequences

    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.

    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 began during August 2013. Owners may contact Nissan Customer Service at 1-800-647-7261.
