Pathfinder 6-cyl

  • 58,473 miles
The contact owned a 2017 Nissan Pathfinder. The contact stated that while her husband was crossing an intersection at 35 mph, another vehicle was driving reckless and drove past a left turn stop light causing that vehicle to crash into the passenger side of the vehicle. On impact, the vehicle's air bags failed to deploy, no warning lights illuminated either. The driver sustained injuries to his neck, back, left elbow and both knees. The front passenger sustained neck, back and left shoulder injuries. Both parties were taken to the hospital where they were treated for their injuries. The whereabouts of the other driver were unknown. A police report was filed. The vehicle was destroyed. The manufacturer was not notified of the failure. There were no recalls associated with the vehicle. The failure mileage was unknown.

My 2017 Nissan Pathfinder has a faulty occupancy sensor and per Nissan my 2017 Nissan Pathfinder is not included with the massive occupancy sensor recall including over 3,000,000,000 Nissan. Https://www.cars.com/articles/Nissan-massive-airbag-recall-what-owners-need-to-know-1420684514439/ this is a safety issue as the airbags will not deploy with a faulty sensor. Nissan claims the sensor is faulty due to things such as a water bottle being found under the seat. Because my SUV is out of warranty due to miles Nissan will not cover the repair. I suspect the recall should be expanded as I wonder how many other Nissan owners are told their occupancy sensors are broken due to their own actions rather than being faulty. Shame on you Nissan.
