Joining other Nissan vehicles in being affected by the Takata airbag recalls, owners of the Nissan Tiida are also being asked to return their vehicle to a dealership to have the airbags attended to.
Being overseen by the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) the recall affects Nissan C11 Tiida vehicles built between October 2006 and December 2012.
The ACCC recall notice advising that the propellant tablets in some of the subject inflators may experience an alteration over time, which could potentially lead to over-aggressive combustion in the event of an airbag deployment.
Depending on the circumstances, this potential condition could create excessive internal pressure when the airbag is deployed, which could result in the body of the inflator rupturing upon deployment.
Abnormal front driver airbag deployment or metal fragment scatter may pose a hazard to the occupants of the vehicle.
Nissan will write to all affected Nissan Tiida owners once parts become available to complete the recall. The repairs will be carried out at no charge to owners.
