PROVO, Utah – Nissan announced a recall on all 2012 Versa models this week.
Versa owners have complained that the side and seat mounted air bags deploy without warning. Nissan said the unexpected deployment may be due to the five year degradation of a sensor that recognizes impact.
The recall will affect more than 54,000 vehicles across the country. It has owners concerned about their safety, including Brigham Young University student Bryan Dukes.
“It’s a little bit worrying to know that I could just be driving on the highway or on a road and have my airbag deploy, and that in itself could cause an accident,” Dukes said.
Nissan warns 2012 Versa owners to avoid doing anything that could trigger the sensor, such as slamming doors, until they can get their vehicles fixed.
The company said all 2012 Versa owners can take their cars into any Nissan dealership for free maintenance. The only model affected so far is the 2012 Versa.
