2010 Nissan Pathfinder

Own a 2010 Nissan Xterra or Pathfinder? Was it one of the 4,038 built between February 22 and March 13 of this year? If so, expect to get a recall letter from Nissan in the very near future.

Xterra and Pathfinder models built within this time period may not have had passenger airbag fasteners torqued to the correct values. In the event of a passenger airbag deployment, this could cause the airbag to inflate at an incorrect angle, injuring front seat occupants.

I’m not a big fan of explosives aimed at my face, and I like incorrectly aimed explosives even less. Be sure to get your Nissan fixed as soon as you can; in the mean time, I hear the back seat is a good place for passengers.
