Faulty Air Bags
According to the NHTSA, the affected vehicles computer software may not detect an adult in the passenger seat. In the event of an accident, if a passenger is not detected then the air bag will not deploy. Passengers in these affected vehicles are at an increased risk of suffering serious injuries during an accident.
Did Nissan Know About the Problem?
In 2013, Nissan recalled more than 80,000 vehicles due to a similar issue. According to reports, there have been three accident reports in which the air bags failed to deploy. Although Nissan had recalled and repaired many vehicles, they continued to receive complaints from consumers including those who had their vehicles repaired.
Nissan will begin notifying affected owners by mid-April and intends to repair the vehicles software free of charge.

Great experience! Took care of pretty much everything, and I always felt like I want in good hands. Caroline Fa. was also a great help with everything. She always returned my calls and I never felt unheard. Even after my case she would still help me with my insurance documents.
Liz was great
Juan Roque has been integral with my legal needs. Communication has been easy. He conveys information I can easily understand without a lot of "Legal Fluff" jargon. I will certainly do business with Phillips Legal team again and refer them to my friends and family.
I didn’t know anything about the area, and Phillips Law Group just took care of everything. They helped made sure I knew where I was going, made sure I didn’t have to worry. They literally just took care of me.
Liz Gonzales was great!!!!
