Failure Date: 02/03/2014

The Sentra has a light on the dashboard that alerts the driver if the passenger airbag is disabled. This light on my Sentra will sometimes come on even though a 150 pound person is sitting in the passenger seat. Initially I was able to get the light to turn off by braking fast. A few nights ago, I could not get the light to turn off for a 20 minute drive even though a 150 pound person is sitting in the seat. Per Nissan, the air bag is providing no codes for this issue and unless I can recreate it there is nothing they can do. I have contacted Nissan customer service and was told to video tape the light, go to a different dealer who can then read the codes of which there are not any or to trade in the vehicle. I am concerned that the air bag will not properly deploy in a front end collision.

I was traveling to my new home when I realized the car in front of me was completely stopped to make a left hand turn. I slammed on my brakes,but hit the car in front of me. My air bags did not deploy. I am concerned because the crash caused 4 fractures in my right ankle and foot. Had the airbags deployed, would they have held me back in my seat and lessoned the crash impact on my foot/ankle?.

I was sitting at the red light when a suburban was speeding and wasn't paying attention. He hit me from the back which cased a 4 car wreck. My trunk was literally pushed to my front seat. The fron of my car was under the car in front of me. My car was totaled. I hit my shoulder on the steering wheel along with my neck and shoulders. This wreck made me disabled. The air bags never deployed. It was a major accident wasn't much left of the car and my air bags never came out. The air bags more than likely would have saved me from that horrible impact. I am now disabled for life and my doctor mentioned the air bags would have taking the force of the injuries.

I have a 2006 Nissan Sentra and involved in a crash. Another driver turned left in front of me. I hit her going approximately 45mph. My front driver's side hit her front driver's side. My air bag did not deploy. At 45mph the air bag should have deployed. I now have neck injuries. There was a little over $2,200 damage to the front of my car and it was not drivable due to the front left tire being pushed almost all the way into the wheel well. I just saw a safety recall for other Nissan's for airbag problems and am wondering if the Sentra's should have been included. Thank-you.
