Hello and welcome to another Recall Masters video blog.
Nissan North America has recalled one hundred and eleven two thousand-eighteen Nissan Versa Note hatchbacks believed to be equipped with defective side curtain air bag inflators. The automaker suspects just one percent of the models named in the action actually contain the defective safety features.
The affected vehicles contain side curtain air bag assemblies with top hat diffusers that could detach during deployment, putting occupants at risk for injury.
Nissan notified dealers December 22, 2017 and plans to reach out to owners February 8, 2018. The automotive company plans to replace the defective features free of charge.
Thanks for watching and make sure to check back in for more recall updates.

Owners of affected vehicles will be notified of the recall in mid-January, and can bring them to local Toyota dealers to replace old fuses with new and improved products…
