Recall no.


Nissan North America, Inc. (Nissan) is recalling certain 2001-2003 Maxima, 2002-2006 Sentra, 2002-2004 Pathfinder, 2007-2011 Versa Sedan and Versa Hatchback, 2001-2004 Infiniti I30 and I35, 2002-2003 Inifiniti QX4, 2003-2008 Infiniti FX35 and FX45 and 2006-2010 M35 and M45 vehicles. The vehicles are equipped with non-desiccated, frontal passenger air bag inflators containing phase stabilized ammonium nitrate (PSAN) propellant that were used as interim remedy parts for previous Takata recalls. These inflators may explode due to propellant degradation occurring after long-term exposure to high absolute humidity, high temperatures, and high temperature cycling.

Recall consequence

An inflator explosion may result in sharp metal fragments striking the driver or other occupants resulting in serious injury or death.

Recall action

Nissan will notify owners, and dealers will replace the front passenger air bag inflators with alternate desiccated inflators, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin February 10, 2020. Owners may contact Nissan customer service at 888-737-9511 or Infiniti customer service at 888-810-3715.

So there does appear to be a recall on that model car, but I would call the numbers given here for info instead of that one, just to be safe.

You can always check to see if any recalls are on your vehicle through the NHTSA site:

Put in your VIN and it will tell you of any safety recalls for your car.

I’m from Germany and I also owned a car in the past which got recalled for airbag safety concerns. In Germany, there’s a government agency related to vehicles and their safety and they know who is registered with which vehicle (license plate, VIN etc) and they mail anyone who’s affected by this. I don’t think some random private company would contact you regarding this. It either has to come from some government agency or your own car dealership or Nissan.

Yeah the email you received seems a little fishy, but safety recalls are important so I would put your VIN in at the site and follow their instructions for contacting a dealer / repair shop.
