Takata Airbag User Information
There have been reported incidents of serious injury or death for those driving in vehicles containing the Takata airbags. If you are unable to come in for the free repair immediately, Nissan strongly recommends drivers to not allow anyone to sit in the passenger seat. For the driver side, there have been no reported incidents related to the airbag, however, out of a matter of safety, it is still strongly urged to come in and have your vehicle inspected. There are no warnings that your vehicle has a defective Takata airbag installed. If you find that your airbag light is on, that is due to another reason and should also be brought in for inspection. If you have already brought in your Nissan for an interim airbag repair, Nissan will send you a notice via first class mail, for a final repair. We understand how much of an inconvenience this can be and that due to the high volume of vehicles being recalled, that in some instances, repairs may take longer than the predicted 1 to 2 hours. For those who need a vehicle while theirs is being repaired, Downey Nissan can provide you with a complimentary loaner. Downey Nissan is happy to serve customers in Norwalk, Lynwood, and Compton.
