Nissan Has Recalled the 1994-1995 Altima
National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has released the
Models: Nissan Altima Year: 1994-1995
Number Potentially Involved: 190,000
Dates of Manufacture: September 1993 – March 1995
Problem: Nissan is recalling certain passenger vehicles following reports
that passenger air bag deployments in these vehicles had caused a number of
moderate-to-severe eye injuries. Nissan has developed a new passenger air
bag that is less powerful when it inflates in a crash to reduce the risk of
air bag inflation-related injuries.
Remedy: Nissan dealers will replace the passenger air bag at no charge to
the consumer. The manufacturer has reported that owner notification is
expected to begin during May 2003. This action is deemed a safety
improvement campaign and is not being conducted under the Safety Act. Owners
may contact Nissan at 1-800-647-7261.
[NHTSA Campaign No. 03V150].
