Nissan LEAF Recall — 2013, 2014 Models Recalled For Airbag Sensor Software Issue

 Earth News  Comments Off on Nissan LEAF Recall — 2013, 2014 Models Recalled For Airbag Sensor Software Issue
Mar 302014
 



The 2013 and 2014 models of Nissan’s highly popular electric vehicle, the LEAF, are being recalled by the auto giant in order to address an issue with the airbag sensor software.

While a large number of LEAFs — approximately 29,165 — are affected by the recall, that number is just a tiny fraction of the total number of cars being recalled — over 990,000. The recall includes — in addition to the LEAFs manufactured between November 21, 2012, and February 6, 2014 — the 2013-2014 Altima and Sentra sedans, the Pathfinder crossovers, and the 2013 NV200 vans, as well as some models from the luxury brand Infiniti — including the 2014 Q50 sedan, the QX60 crossover, and the 2013 JX35.

The recall is being performed in order to fix an issue with the software regulating airbag deployment during a crash, software responsible for the important front-passenger seat Occupant Classification System (OCS) — the system that determines whether or not there’s someone in the seat.

In the vehicles affected by the software problem, the system may determine that the seat is empty even if there is someone in it — as a result, the airbag for that seat may not deploy in a crash.

The fix is free of charge, and is expected to be available sometime around mid-April.

Owners of the LEAF (and the other affected models) can contact Nissan at 1-800-647-7261. The recall notice is posted at the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s Safercar.gov website under ID number 14V138000.
