    side airbag sensor recall for model years 2015, 2016, 2017

    Just found out aboutthis recall this morning when I dropped off my car at the dealer.

    The recall was issued November 17 2017
    On certain vehicles, a bad connection at the side airbag sensor connector could cause a momentary communication loss from the side airbag sensor to the Airbag Control Unit (ACU). This would put the system in a backup state, lowering the impact threshold required for a side airbag deployment. If a door is being closed with force while the system is in this backup state, this could cause an unintended curtain airbag, seat-mounted side airbag and seat belt pretensioner deployment in a non-warranted (non-impact) situation, which would increase the risk of injury to occupants.

    Transport Canada Recall # 2014559
    Recall Date 2014/12/10
    Notification Type Safety Mfr
    System Airbag
    Manufacturer Recall Number
    Units Affected The number of vehicles or components affected by the recall. 259
    Category Car
    Recall Details
    On certain vehicles, the driver's (frontal) airbag inflator was built with an incorrect part which could cause the inflator to rupture during a deployment. In a crash, this may cause airbag components to separate, which could allow fragments to be propelled toward vehicle occupants, increasing the risk of injury. Correction: Dealers will replace the driver's (frontal) airbag inflator.

    The first recall (shrapnel) affects only 258 cars. The second one appears to affect every car sold in Canada. When you consider that a car is made from thousands of parts you should probably expect that a few of them may not work as engineered.
    What really amazes me is that NISSAN CANADA does not list any recalls on ANY of their webpages.

    I think that to them it would look bad if they are putting recalls on their website for new people look for a car. For me, all cars are going to have flaws. When it comes to time, anyone remember how long it took GM to respond about their key issues, few people died? 10 Years I think?

    lets try and keep the door closing speed below 4.2 m/s!

    "the force required to achieve this velocity means the person closing the door is likely located outside the vehicle"

    Double yikes!!the sensors in the floor and there is cutting and soldering!! thiiiiiink i might wait a while until they get good at it.....

    and it should take 1.6 hrs !..that would take me about 4!!

    Just spoke with the dealer. Parts are B/O for about 4 to 6 weeks. They will call me back when the parts will be available. No appointment possible for now (Gabriel Nissan du Plateau, Montreal)
