What’s the Problem?
This recall affects 2001-2003 Nissan Maximas equipped with non-desiccated, frontal passenger airbag inflators, according to the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).
The airbag inflators in affected vehicles contain phase stabilized ammonium nitrate (PSAN) propellant which was used as an interim remedy for previous Takata recalls, NHTSA said. These inflators may explode due to propellant degradation, resulting in sharp metal fragments striking the driver or other occupants.
Nissan is contacting owners and dealers will replace the passenger airbag inflators with alternate desiccated inflators, free of charge. This recall began on February 12, 2020.
