Takata recall; after purchasing vehicle and driving for about 10 minutes; check engine light suddenly comes on prior to picking up speed to enter highway; vehicle abruptly loses power at a speed of 65 miles per hour and stalls in traffic causing a near fatal traffic accident; after running the VIN number in NHTSA database vehicle was never recalled for grossly negligent issue with crankshaft and camshaft position sensors. This leads me to the fact that vehicle manufacturer never contacted original owner concerning this terrible safety issue. After finding out about two outstanding recalls that were never addressed in which the vehicle has exhibited potential catastrophic consequences based upon the manufacturers product defect it was uncovered that the vehicle has a potential fatal issue with the passenger side airbag. I am extremely terrified to operate this vehicle and my experience on October 1, 2016 of operating this vehicle and it losing power abruptly risking my life and limb has caused me extreme depression, stress, and mental anguish. If these issues are not corrected immediately as a remedy at law with the nearest Nissan dealer including towing at manufacturer's expense, I and the texas office of the attorney general will pursue a gross product liability negligence legal action against Nissan based upon my legal advice and texas law; which clearly states that in a product liability dispute the statute of limitations is 15 years from sale unless manufacturer says useful life is longer. Texas civil practice & remedies code ann. § 16. 012. Thank you for your time and attention to this serious safety matter.

After driving the car one evening the engine spontaneously caught a fire. The fire deptartment said it started from some problem in the engine. In addition we notice the heat of the fire did not deploy the driver and passenger side air-bags. Normally in many cases of car fires the fire will deploy the emergency air-bags and cause the car alarm to sound this did not happen with my incident.
The car was hit in the driver and rear door at approximately 40miles per hour. The side airbag was too forceful causing serious injury to eye and burns mark. We feel the airbag was more harm than good, at the point of almost losing eyesight in one eye.

Driver side air bag alert blinking. Nissan claims no recall and states that they must replace the air bag in order to run diagnostic tests. My car is in perfect working order so my question to you is; what constitutes a mandatory recall? must consumers wait until there are a certain number of incidents before it is determined a faulty part?.

The passenger-side airbag improperly deployed thereby exploding and rupturing which resulted in significant and permanent injuries.
I received a notice of a recall for the driver's side airbag of my 2002 Nissan Sentra in the mail, which instructed me to make an appointment with my local Nissan dealership to have the necessary repairs made free of charge. I made an appointment and appeared at the dealership, and the dealer is telling me that they cannot complete the repairs because the recall is not yet archived in their system, and that the system will take one business day to become available. This difficulty contradicts the very nature of a recall: to ensure the safety of the driver as soon as possible. Because of an inadequacy of their "system"--they are fully equipped mechanically to do the repair--I'm expected to drive home and return a different day with an unsafe driver's side airbag.

On July 20, 2010, I was stopped at a traffic light when I was rear-ended by another vehicle. The force of the crash was such that the rear of the car I was driving sustained several thousand dollars in damage. The force also, propelled me into the car stopped in front of me. This other car sustained damage to their bumper to dislodge it from its supports and throw their rear window off track. There is no place in the repair bill that stated that the airbag was reset because it failed to deploy. Given the fact that the rear crumple zone was destroyed, and the rear quarter panels were replaced, this car is rented by budget under the guise of it being safe. The paperwork I received from budget also states that the features of this Nissan Sentra (2010) is front, rear and side airbags. Since all of the rear of the car was destroyed it can be safely assumed that the airbag sensor should have been triggered. If both from the rear of the car definitely from the force of my car being propelled into the car in front of me. Budget rented this car as being a "safe" car with this Nissan safety equipment when it clearly is not.

My wife skidded off a freshly graveled road and nose-dived into a ditch frontend first, catapulted the vehicle into a c/clockwise spin and wrapped the vehicle around a tree. The original impact was front end and no airbags deployed. The passenger side was completely crushed hitting the tree with what would appear as a side curtain airbag deployment. On investigation, it appears the air bag was torn out of the center wall (no propellant smell or residue). Had the air bags deployed there would not have been injuries that certainly would not have required med-a-vac. Jpc/SC .

My husband was in an accident in July of this year. He collided head on with some 50 gallon barrels on the side of the road going 60 mph. He came to a complete stop within 10 feet. Neither the driver side nor passenger side airbag deployed in the accident. Nissan was contacted and responded saying that the conditions were not met to allow the airbags to deploy. I do not know where to go from here. Our car would have been totaled if the airbags would have deployed. Howerver, because they did not the insurance company repaired the vehicle and now we are driving around in a death trap. I am paying full price for a vehicle that is defective and no one at Nissan seems to care. Where do I go from here. . What do I do?.
