The electrical unit that controls the passenger air bag, located in the right passenger seat, has been found to be in nonworking order by the dealer and dealer claims there is no active recall regarding that malfunction. For the dealer to replace said part would cost the owner $2000.

" takata recall"-my passenger air bag light went on and then the airbag light on the dashboard. I went to the dealer and they charged me to tell me I have defective airbags. I was told they are not under any warranty or recall. I juts bought the car used from Nissan in Feb 2015. They are saying I have to start with replacing my passenger seat and that will be$1,900 and there is no guarantee that the repair will stop there. I was told that none of the airbags will function until this is repaired.

Passenger air bag sensor has failed. Air bag light blinks. Sensor is in seat. Cvt transmissions fail without warning. Research indicates this occurs at highway speeds and causes a hazard in traveled lanes.

The passenger air bag sensor light is flashing. The Nissan dealership determined that the airbag sensor is not working and would require a new sensor which cost $2500 to replace. I was told that in the case of an accident the airbag may or may not deploy.

My air bag light continues to blink indicating something wrong with my passenger side air bag. I was told that due to this problem, the passenger seat needed to be replaced. An expensive repair. Recall reference #ntb08-095C specifically addresses this problem. However, my vehicle was is included in the recall. I feel that my Nissan Rogue 2009 ( produced in Jan 2009) and the air bag manufactured by takata, should be included in the recall and repaired. This is a problem, with numerous people also posting about it. Thanks in advance for your attention to this matter.

The passenger airbag indicates "off" even when an adult is sitting in the passenger seat. Airbag warning light constantly flashing in dash. This problem seems to be a common one in this model year vehicle and should be repaired under safety recall through the dealership. It would be a very sad day when someone has an accident / crash and the passenger airbag does not deploy, potentially causing injury or even death!

My 2009 Nissan Rogue has never been in an accident. Out of nowhere my passenger airbag light started to flash, I brought it in to my local mechanic who said that it was the airbag sensor underneath the passenger seat and that he was unable to do anything about it as it takes certain programming to make the airbags work appropriately. I then brought my car in to a Nissan dealer where they told me it would be $200 to hook their machine us to read the code to even begin the diagnostic process I've been told them that this is reported on line time after time again specifically on the 2008 and 2009 models and I don't feel I should have to pay for them to hook up a machine to read the diagnostic code in which I had in my hand. After doing more research online I have had numbers between $300 and $2,000 be quoted for this part to fix the issue and according to most of the people that have said they paid to have it fixed at some point they came back and reissued new complaints on the same form that it does happen over and over again. How is Nissan not fixing an issue that makes their airbags disfunctional and not deploy? I guess it takes some death and a lawsuit before it will get done.

There was an accident that occurred with this car and the passenger airbag did not deploy, which could have caused a major injury to the passenger. I have noticed that this a know issue with the 2008 Nissan rouge. The airbag sensor in not working and this is extremely dangerous especially, since an accident occurred. Nissan should be responsible to fix this issue, since they know they had problems with this model the year before.
