The vehicle front airbag light constantly flashes for no reason. It blinks while stationary or in motion. It was reset by the Nissan service tech, but started flashing again after 5 minutes on the highway.

Side airbags deployed while my wife was driving on a smooth county road without a collision at approximately 20 mph. Driver only in the vehicle, ears are ringing. Had to cut the air bags to be able to drive the vehicle home. In drive way, unusable at this point. Seat belt retractors activated so cannot use seatbelt at this point.

The airbag light is lit and will not reset. I am not sure if the airbag is operating correctly or not. I have seen several similar complaints online. The vehicle has not been involved in a collision or any other damage.

Going down back road, hit a depression, the truck naturally rocked a bit from side to side, side airbags (passenger and driver) suddenly deployed w/a horrendous loud bang, scaring me half to death a long w/my left ear ringing. Ridiculous that it is that sensitive in a 4X4 truck that they advertise navigating rough conditions. I truly hope this does not end up costing me and that Nissan steps up to the plate and makes this right. 2 other very similar reports on this site.
