The Passenger air Bag Off Warning Light Comes On Intermittently While An Adult Over 125 Lbs Is Seated In The Passenger Seat. This Has Happened Multiple Times With Multiple Adults Of Various Weights. If The Car Is Stopped, Turned Off And Turned Back On It Usually Clears The Problem. I Have Brought The Car Into The nissan Service Center Four Times. Each Time They Have Done Something Else To Try To Resolve The Problem But It Keeps Happening. I Am Awaiting A Call Back From The Manager Of The nissan Service Center. I Am Very Concerned That In The Event Of An Accident My Passenger Will Not Be Protected By A Working Front air Bag. I Have Searched This Problem On Line And Seen Many Post Of Similar Problems For The 2013 nissan altima. I Have Also Seem Many Instances Of This Problem With Previous altima Models And Other nissan Vehicles. *tr

With A Full-size Adult Sitting In The Front Passenger Seat, The airbag Light Stays Illuminated (which Indicates The Passenger Side airbag Is Not Engaged). This Happened Every Single Time I’ve Operated My Vehicle Since I Purchased It On December 28th, No Matter The Size Of The Adult Sitting In The Passenger Seat – Anywhere From 130 Lb. Individual To 220 Lb. Individual. For Reference, My Friend Has A Rogue And The airbag Engages (i.e. Light Goes Off) With Just Her Handbag In The Seat. I Took It To The Local Dealership Since The Car Is Fully Covered By Warranty. They Ordered A New Sensor From nissan And Have Not Been Able To Resolve The Issue With The New Sensor. They Have Had My Brand New Vehicle (500 Miles) For 6 Days. I Read On-line Boards That Indicate This Is A Problem With 2013 nissan altimas (http://www.nissanclub.com/forums/2013-nissan-altima-discussion-2-5-3-5/331394-passenger-airbag-light.html) And Am Very Concerned I Purchased This Vehicle. I May Be Returning It Under The Lemon Law. *tr

There Is An Intermittent Passenger airbag Detection Issue With 2013 nissan altima 2.5 Sv. There Were In Multiple Times When A Full Grown Person(weight > 150lbs) Sitting On The Passenger Side, While Car Was Being Driven, ‘passenger Side air Bag Off’ Indicator Would Turn On, Indicating That Car Is Not Detecting Anyone In The Front Passenger Side And In Result airbags Were Turned Off. This Warning Indication Stayed On Throughout Our Drive And Sometimes Turned Off After 10-15 Minutes Of Drive And In Other Occasions It Didn’t Turn Off At All Until Car Was Turned Off. If This Was Just A Feature Issue Then Much Lower Priority Should Been Assigned But It Is A Major Safety Issue/concern And I Request An Investigation. A Blatant Disregard From The Manufacturer Of This Issue May Result In Death, Injury And Property Damage. I Request The Help Of Nhtsa For Quick And Thorough Investigation On This Matter. Thank You! *tr

I Have Owned This Car For All Of A Week. There Are At Least 2 Major Safety Concerns. The First Is The Passenger air Bag. The Light On The Dash Indicates That The air Bag Is “off” When My Wife Sits In The Passenger Seats. She Is An Adult, Height About 5′ 2″ And Weighs Approx. 120 Lbs. Apparently I Am Not The Only One With This Issue. Calls To nissan Are A Waste Of Time At This Point As I’m Told Nothing About How This Will Be Resolved. The Other Issue Is With The Cvt Transmission. Under Light Acceleration, At About 1200-1500 Rpm There Is A Vibration And Its Very Noisy. It Almost Seems Like The Car Is Going To Die Out. The Other Issues I Am Having With The Car Of Which There Are A Few Are Not Necessarily Safety Related So I Wont Post Them Here. Needless To Say, There Are Better And Safer Choices Out There. Choose Wisely. *tr

The Passenger airbag Light Is Constantly On Meaning That The airbag Is Not Activating No Matter Who Is Sitting On The Seat. We Took It To The Dealer One Week After We Purchased It And They “supposedly” Reset The Sensor. We Left The Dealership And The Problem Persisted Immediately. We Took It Back To The Dealer A Week Later And A nissan Engineer Was There That Day And He Looked At It And Said That There Was Nothing They Could Do About. This Is A Serious Safety Issue. A Person’s Life Could Be Lost Because Of The Manufacturing Defect. nissan Should Seriously Look Into This And Recall The Cars Before Something Serious Happens To Any Of Us Who Purchased This Car. We Can’t Believe That Knowing That There Is This Serious Problem, They Will Not Even Try To Fix It. It Shows Lack Of Concern And Responsibility On Their Part For Their Customers. We Are Going To Use The “lemon Law” And Return The Car Since This Is A Safety Issue And A Manufacturers Defect. Safecar.gov And The National Highway Safety Administration Needs To Investigate This Issue. There Are Plenty Of Complaints In Regards To This Issue. Back In 2009 nissan Recalled Several Of Their Cars (including The altima) For This Same Problem. I Can’t Believe That They Still Haven’t Gotten It Right. *tr

The Day I Purchased The Vehicle (1/23/13) The Seat Belt Light Would Not Shut Off. The Passenger airbag Light Would Also Indicate That The Passenger airbag Was Disengaged With A Passenger In The Vehicle. The Dealership (rosenthal nissan Of Tysons) Took The Car In Back And Made Some Adjustments. The Problem Apparently Went Away. Tonight (2/9/13) The Passenger airbag Sensor Once Again Indicated No Passenger When My 110 Lb Wife Was Sitting In The Seat. I Tried It With Myself (175lb) And Again It Occurred. This Is An Unacceptable Safety Concern. *tr

I Have Owned This 2013 altima For 5 Months And The Passenger airbags Continuously Stay On “off Mode”. I Am A Female And Weigh 136 Pounds And My Husband Rides On The Passenger Side As Well At Times And He Is 160 Pounds, So There Is Definitely Enough Weight. I Believe There Is A Defect Within The Sensors. In My Vehicle It Will Stay Off For Hours Or Sometimes It Will Take 15-30 Minutes And It Will Turn On, But It Never Stays On.i Have Seen Several Complaints With The Same Issue. And It Could Be Life Threatening To A Passenger In One Of These Vehicles If The airbags Do Not Deploy In A Crash. nissan Needs To Take A Closer Look At This Issue Before Someone Loses There Life. There Is Definitely Something Wrong And Something Needs To Be Done Quickly To Resolve This Issue Its A Serious Matter. There Are Lives At Stake Here.. *tr

The First Six Weeks We Had The Car It Operated Normally. Than The Passenger air Bag Off Light Occasionally Would Come On With My 120 Lb Wife In The Seat. Now It Will Come On All Of The Time. If You Start The Car Before She Gets In The Light Usually Stays Off After She Gets In But Not Always. With A 50 Lb Person In The Seat The Light Does Not Come On, That Is When I Think It Should Come On. *tr

The “passenger air Bag Off” Warning Light May Come On When An Adult Or Large Teenager Is Sitting In The Front Passenger Seat. This Failure Happens Occasionally. At Times, The Warning Light Will Go Off After A Few Minutes Of Driving. It Appears That Either The Seat Sensor(s) Or The Software That Reads The Sensor(s) And Determines The Size/weight Of The Front Passenger May Be Faulty. I Am Amazed That There Has Been No Recall Of The 2013 altima For This Issue, Given The Number Of Complaints On This Website. *tr

Purchased A New 2013 altima Sedan 3.5sl In November 2012. Within Days Noticed That The Passenger airbag Light Was Always On, Whether A Passenger Was In The Passenger Seat Or Not. Took Car Into Dealer And Was Told That The Sensor Had Been Incorrectly Calibrated At 200 Pounds Instead Of 0 Pounds. They Recalibrated The Sensor And The airbag Light Worked Fine… For Approximately 2 Weeks. The Passenger airbag Warning Light Is Now Always On. This Issue Concerns Me Because I Must Assume That The Passenger airbag Will Never Deploy. *tr

I Bought This Car New (nissan altima 2013 – 3.5sl) And Found Out After 2 Days That The Passenger Front airbag Light Was Working In A Sporadic Manner. My Wife Weighs 112 Lbs. And The Sensor Will Not Work To Protect Her To Inflate – As The Light Indicates The airbag Is Off. I Sat In The Seat At 160 Lbs. And The Light Went Off And Then Came Back On. The Dealer Said It Had No Solution That I Had To Drive It That Way. The Search On The Internet Showed A Hundreds Of Complaints About The nissan Front Passenger airbag. This Notice Of Complaint Is Concerning Why There Has Not Been A Recall On This Defect That Is Life Threatenting And Why The Nhtsa Has Not Stepped In To Protect The Consumer. *tr

The Passenger Side airbag Warning Light Has Been Coming On At Random Times When Someone Is Sitting In The Seat. It Has Been Doing This Since I Bought The Car. The Light Indicates That The airbag Is Off. The Dealer Has Reset The Seat Two Time And The Problem Is Not Solved. I Checked Online And Found That Others Have Been Having The Same Problem. The Dealer Has Indicated That nissan Has Put A Hold On Parts For That Seat. They Obviously Know There Is A Problem. I Am Seriously Concerned That Someone Sitting In The Passenger Seat Can Be At Risk In The Event Of An Accident. If nissan Won’t Tell Their Own Dealers What Is Going On That Is A Problem. *tr

I Took Delivery On A New nissan altima 3/15/2013, And The Night Before, I Saw Online That There Was A Recall Related To Passenger air Bag Sensors, So I Asked Dealer To Check On This Before I Took Delivery. The Dealer Told Me That My Vehicle Was Not Covered By That Recall Since It Was Manufactured After That ‘batch’. I Noticed The Next Day That The Red Dash airbag Light Was On, And Also Noticed That The Yellow Passenger airbag ‘off’ Light Was On, Even Though Nobody Was In That Seat, No Object There, Etc. I Drove My Wife In The Car A Few Days Later, And Both Red And Yellow Lights Remained Illuminated Whether She Was In The Seat, Or I Was In The Seat, Or Nobody Was In The Seat. I Checked The Owners Manual, And It Indicated That Both Driver And Passenger airbags May Not Deploy If In An Accident If These Lights Were On. Returned To Dealer On 3/20/2013 After Telling The Dealer That I Refused To Drive This Car Anymore Until This Was Remedied. And Was Told That They Would Investigate, They Provided A Rental Car. I Still Have A Rental Car As Of 3/23/2013, And Have Been Told For 3 Days Now That nissan Has Informed The Dealer That They Want To Send The Dealer An Entire ‘passenger Seat Strip’, But Cannot Provide Information On When The Part Will Be Available Or When It Will Ship. After Reading The Recall Description, My Vehicle Is Exhibiting Exactly The Same Symptoms As The Recall Notice – Both Red And Yellow air Bag Lights Are On And Remain On All The Time. I Asked Again For The Dealer To Check If My Vehicle Was Covered By The Recall, They Said No. How Can It Be That This Vehicle Has Not Been Recalled? The Dealer Told Me That Another Customer Just Had The Same Thing Happen, And The Rental Car Agency Told Me They Just Ordered Several New altimas And That They Had To Return One For The Same Problem. Is The Nhtsa Aware Of This Problem? *tr

After I Bought The Car I Noticed The Driver’s Side Rear View Mirror Was Vibrating While Driving At All Speeds. Then The Dealer Replaced The Mirror Several Times Until They Fixed The Vibrating Problem. But Now, The Mirror They Replaced It With Seems To Be A Generic Mirror, Seems Like A Convex Mirror And The Objects And View Look Deformed. It Isn’t A Flat Mirror And The Dealer Said That Is Normal And All The Cars Have That Same Mirror. That Is A Lie Because When They Changed My Very First Mirror Due To Vibrating, It Was Flat And Clear. This Issue Has Not Been Solved But Now They Replaced 2 Sensors That Are On Recall And Waiting For A Third Sensor On The Driver’s airbag To Be Replaced As Well Due To Recall. I Am So Tired Of Going Back And Forth To The Dealer That I Am Finally Going To File A Complaint, This Car Is A Lemon! (2013 nissan altima Sv -pearl White). *tr

The airbag Sensor For The Front Passenger Seat Does Not Work Properly. On Multiple Occasions, When A 120-130 Lb Female Is Sitting In The Passenger Seat, The Detection System And Warning Light Suggest The air Bag Has Been Shut Off.

But I Assume The Weight Maximum For Shut-off Has To Be Around 70 Pounds. *tr
