Nissan has announced one of the more unusual recalls in recent memory, as well as one that is very specific: the 2014 Pathfinder that has the Almond interior. In all, the crossovers that were produced from July 25, 2013, to September 5, 2013 will be affected, although the actual amount of vehicles was not disclosed.
It has been determined that the tear seam on the passenger frontal airbag, located on the instrument panel, was not cut correctly on the back side of the instrument panel. This could cause the passenger-side air bag to not properly deploy in the event of an collision. If it were to not deploy, this could increase the risk of the front passenger sustaining injuries. Nissan has not reported of any injuries as a result of this defect.
This is the second Nissan recall to involve the 2014 Pathfinder, the previous one was for an issue with the anti-lock braking system. As before, this recall will involve notifying the owners via mail, instructing them to contact their local Nissan dealer to schedule a service appointment. From there, the dealer will inspect and replace the instrument panel assembly at no cost. The recall is expected to commence right away.
