Nissan has issued a recall for 54,000 Nissan Versa 2012 models which have curtain and seat-mounted airbags which can unexpectedly deploy when the door is slammed.
Nissan North America, who issued the recall, says the problem is likely to be casued by the degradation of the side impact sensor connector pins. The unexpected deployment of airbags in non-crash situations can increase the risk of injury.
Nissan says dealers will install a new jumper harness and replace the side impact sensors free of charge. Car owners can contact Nissan customer service at 1-800-647-7261.
