Air Back Sensor Oxidation Leads Nissan To Recall 54,000 Versas
Nissan has announced that it is recalling 54,000 2012 Verses for a potential issue with the air bag. Apparently the problem lies with the materials used in one of the sensors that trigger the air bag to deploy. Over time oxidation can form on pins in the electronics of the Satellite Sensor-to-Airbag Control Unit (ACU) harness connection - this oxidation could interfere with the required electrical connection and lead to an air bag failing to deploy.
Currently no injuries have been reported as a result of this potential problem however Shapiro Goldman Babboni Fernandez & Walsh urge anyone with a 2012 Nissan Versa check in with their dealer to schedule a repair.
