Nissan Has Recalled the 1994-1995 Altima

(SafetyAlerts) - The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has released the following information.

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].

Important Note Regarding Auto Recalls
Frequently SafetyAlerts will list auto recalls before
your dealer will know about them. If you have a vehicle
affected by one of these posted recalls be sure and
write down the NHTSA 
If your dealer doesn't know about the recall when you
check, ask them how they are notified of recalls and
when the next update is due.
