While driving home from work a deer ran in front of my vehicle and at 62 mph on a highway my car collided with a deer. As you will see the damage done to my car the car is a possible totaled vehicle. My concern was my air bags did not deploy on this kind of impact. I was told by Nissan they are not made to deploy upon impact buy only by the deceleration of my car. This does not seem to be accurate to me in the fact that it was over a 200 pound animal and my engine was pushed back into the firewall, lost my breaks in the road, and as you can see there is a lot of damage done to the care. I called Nissan to express my concern of this and they said it is normal and the air bags would have caused more damage to me then the impact. I feel they are blowing off something that could be a safety issue in this car.

The problem I have encountered is a flashing airbag light with a vehicle having less than 31000 miles and just out of factory warranty as of March 2018. Also, the passenger seat airbag light stays on even when occupied by an adult. I contacted the dealer and I was informed there were no recalls for my vehicle. I conducted a search and found numerous other Nissan vehicles had the same issues (occupant system) but mine is not listed. My vehicle has not been involved in any event which would have caused this since I have owned the vehicle. The listed date and milage is approximate of when I noticed the issue.

Coming to a red light failed to brake and rear ended another vehicle. You think you are going to brake, but since the accelerator pedal is to close to the right side panel of the car, wont let your foot to move it easy and your foot gets stuck to the open cut area of the trim that the Nissan experts attempted to fix the problem under recall, and there were no brake lights on the car and was witnessed....updated 01/25/16
