Nissan recently issued a recall for around 346,000 vehicles to replace defective Takata airbags. Takata airbags were first recalled in 2014, yet Nissan did not announce these vehicles contained defective airbags until January 2020. Authorized Nissan Dealerships began replacing the airbags on February 10, 2020.

In the fifth huge recall for automakers this year, Nissan Motor is recalling 1 million vehicles in the United States and Canada. The problem in the 2013-2014 model years stems from a federally mandated system intended to determine whether the front passenger seat is occupied. The sensors are supposed to tell if an adult or a child is sitting in the front seat. Because the risk of injury or death to a child is greater from an airbag than from an accident itself, if the system senses there is not enough weight in the front passenger seats, the airbag will not deploy. Abraham Watkins has experience in dealing with accidents involving faulty airbags.
In a recent recall, Nissan has recalled 39,000 Versa small cars because of a dangerous condition that has been detected. Federal Motor Vehicle Safety regulations require a driver's foot must be on the brake before the car can physically be shifted into gear, but Nissan found that in the 2012 model cars made from June 9, 2011 through January 13, 2012, the transmissions can be shifted out of park without the driver's foot on the brake. It appears this recall applies only to those cars made and sold in the United States and Canada.
