Certain 2013-2017 Chevrolet, Infiniti and Nissan owners will be contacted by the manufacturer about a problem affecting the airbag deployment system. The front seat passenger Occupant Classification System (OCS) may incorrectly classify an adult passenger as a child or classify the seat as empty despite it being occupied. As a result, the passenger frontal air bag may not deploy or could deploy incorrectly during a crash.

The vehicles affected by this defect include:

Owners will receive interim notification letters followed by a final notification once a remedy is available. Owners experiencing issues with OCS are asked to immediately contact the dealer for repairs.

  • Chevrolet City Express owners will be notified by General Motors and dealers will reprogram the Air Bag Control Unit (ACU) and OCS Electronic Control Unit (ECU).
  • Altima, Maxima, Murano, Rogue, and Sentra vehicles will have the OCS replaced.
  • LEAF, NV200, NV200 Taxi, Pathfinder, Infiniti Q50, JX35, and QX60 will have the ECU replaced.

Owners wanting more information about the problem are asked to contact Nissan customer service at 1-800-867-7669, Infiniti customer service at 1-888-833-3216 or Chevrolet customer service at 1-800-222-1020. The NHTSA recall campaign number is 16V-244.
