Passenger Airbags Aren't Deploying Because of a Faulty OCS

Nissan is recalling 82,000 vehicles for a faulty Occupant Classification System (OCS) that could cause the passenger-side frontal airbags to fail in a crash.

Nissan says sensors within the passenger occupant detection system may have been manufactured out of specification which could cause the air bag to be suppressed permanently.

The affected vehicles include the 2013 Altima, LEAF, Pathfinder, and Sentra. It also includes the Infiniti JX35.

The recall is expected to begin in April, 2013.
