PhotoNissan North America is recalling 111 model year 2018 Nissan Versa Notes.

During deployment of the side curtain airbag, a component of the air bag inflator may detach.

These vehicles, therefore, fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards (FMVSS) number 214, "Side Impact Protection," and 226, "Ejection Mitigation."

If the component detaches during deployment, it may enter the passenger compartment and be a projectile within the vehicle cabin, increasing the risk of injury.

What to do

Nissan will notify owners, and dealers will replace the side curtain air bags, free of charge.

The recall is expected to begin February 8, 2018.

Owners may contact Nissan customer service at 1-800-647-7261.
