A new recall from Nissan North America affects certain model year 2018 Nissan Versa Note vehicles.

What's the problem?

During deployment of the side curtain air bag, a component of the air bag inflator may detach. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards (FMVSS) number 214, "Side Impact Protection," and 226, "Ejection Mitigation."

If the component detaches when the air bags deploy, it may enter the passenger compartment as a projectile, increasing the risk of injury to vehicle occupants.

What happens next?

Owners of the affected Versa Note vehicles will be notified by Nissan beginning in early February 2018.
