I purchased a 2016 Rogue from cool springs Nissan on 11/16/2016 and took delivery on 11/17 2016. Upon arrival to take delivery we noticed that the ars light was on and contacted the salesman to see what the problem was, he took the new vehicle to the service dept. And was told that the unit was safe to drive so we took the vehicle thinking we were ok. I came home and read the manual and realized that the airbags were actually not going to work if we were in a wreck. I called the dealer service dept. The first thing the next morning and was told to bring it in on 11/19 and they would try to fix. Upon arrival at dealer we were then told that the vehicle should have never been allow to leave their lot. They put us in a rental. They returned the car to us 11/22 and we guess it was fixed ( the lite is not on). Is there not some kind of law that would keep dealers from putting people in danger?

The passenger side airbag will not show activated under a certain condition. The condition is - if the driver buckles in and starts the car and puts it in gear before a 115# passenger gets in and buckles in, the air bag on the passenger side will not activate. I have to stop the car and turn it off and restart to get the airbag to activate. Nissan in Tennessee(800-877-647-7261, case #22914533) says this is normal. I find this to be dangerous, please advise.. a simple solution is to write in to sense a seat belt connection and activate the airbag.

My vehicle was recalled for an airbag sensor problem. I brought it in for the repair and now the airbag 'off'' light for the passenger seat is on. I called my dealership and they said that now the airbag light will stay on until a passenger weighing 120 lbs or more sits in the seat. The airbags will not deploy if someone under 120 lbs sits in the seat.. they didn't mention this when I was in for the recall and it seems quite dangerous. The manual indicates there is a problem if the light is still on 10 seconds after starting the car. They told me to disregard that it will now be on until someone over 120 lbs. Sits in the seat. Can this be right? if so they need to tell people that there's no airbag for people under 120lbs. A lot of adults weigh less than 120lbs and I'm sure not many people are aware that they have no airbag protection. Thanks for your consideration.

When an adult passenger is seated in the passenger seat, and the vehicle is started, the airbag off indicator will remain illuminated on some occasions (without any discernible reason, such as seating position). Sometimes, when the airbag off light has incorrectly illuminated, the light will then shut off when the vehicle is in motion (with the passenger still seated in the same position) at no discernible interval of time, distance, or speed. This problem has occurred on a daily basis, sometimes multiple times daily. The dealership examined the vehicle on 1/8/2016 and states there is no problem that they can find and that they cannot replicate the complaint. However, airbag off problem is ongoing.
