2012 Versa Airbags Deploy When Door it Shut

2012 Versa owners say the side airbags can deploy simply from shutting the door. Does that mean all Versa owners have superhero strength? The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) intends to find out.

Safety regulators say early warning data submitted by Nissan shows the same airbag problems as Versa owners have complained about, so NHTSA needs to find out what is causing the faulty airbag deployments.

I wouldn’t grab a cape just yet as it’s likely an electrical issue. The investigation is ongoing.
