Geographic Scope

Nissan is conducting a national recall expansion of the Takata recall in specific geographic zones (see map). This expansion has been structured according to instruction from NHTSA with 5 phases and 3 geographic zones. Time, temperature, and humidity have been found by NHTSA and multiple independent investigations to contribute to significant propellant degradation that can lead to unreasonable risk of inflator rupture.

ZONE A: Includes states and U.S. territories with high temperature cycling and humidity.

ZONE B: Includes states with moderate temperature cycling and humidity.

ZONE C: Includes states with lower temperature cycling and humidity.

If your vehicle has ever been registered in a zone with higher risk than your current residence, it falls under the remedy schedule for the higher risk zone. This is reflected in the instructions provided in the Nissan Recall Lookup tool.
