Shortly after a rainstorm this vehicle (Nissan Titan 2006) was being driven late at night on an unpaved country road in the vicinity of webster parish, la. As the road was wet and the visibility was very limited it was being driven no faster than about 20 miles per hour when they ran into a rut in the road with the left front tire and that caused the airbags to deploy. When the vehicle ran into the rut in the road it tilted very slightly and then righted itself. There was no exterior damage to the vehicle and there were no injuries to the people riding in the vehicle. The vehicle was then driven to the local Nissan dealership and they contacted Nissan who said that the airbags had deployed properly and they would not pay any part of replacing them or the seat belts. The Nissan representative also said that the vehicles¿ computer sent out an ¿error code¿ that the vehicle had rolled over. Also, when we discussed this issue with another Nissan trained and certified technician, we were told that 7 out of 10 Titans have issues with their computers and that the sensor under the vehicle is prone to come loose. It doesn't seem logical that a minor incident like this could cause the airbags to deploy and have to be replaced along with the seat belts unless the system in this vehicle was defective. It cost more than $5,000 to replace the airbags and the seat belts and Nissan would not pay any of this amount.

The rear seat seat-belts of my Nissan Titan truck will tighten into a locked position causing the passenger to become immobilized against the seat back. The only way to undo the locked seat-belt is to completely disengage it, and then re-lock it. However, it's then just a matter of time before it locks up again forcing the passenger to unlock it. This is obviously a safety hazard, because the passenger has to undo their seat-belt while the vehicle is in motion so they can move. I have complained to the Nissan dealer and they have replaced the seat belts on three different occasions, but the problem persists, and they say they can't fix them. I have verified with other 2006 Nissan Titan owners and they have noted the same problem, and the Nissan dealer admitted they have had others with the same problem. They need to redesign the rear seat belts or use different types that won't tighten and lock up when people are simply sitting in them, which creates this serious safety hazard. I always insist that anyone riding with me use the seat belts, but I have noted on occasion that some have released them without telling me, because the seat belt had locked up on them, causing too much discomfort. Maybe you can get Nissan to correct this serious safety problem, because they won't listen to me (they simply replace the defective seat belt with a similar defective one).

NHTSA campaign id number: 06V459000 I was told that this recall does not apply to my vehicle, but I do have this problem, and I do have the vehicle mentioned. I was told by Nissan and the dealership that my vehicle's VIN is not part of the campaign.

On the Nissan 2006 Titan le, the front seat belts will not full retract when unbuckled. If not noticed prevents the door from fully closing or if the door does close on the belt, the person wearing the belt is not fully restrained. In the event of a crash could be thrown into the windshield or from the vehicle. This seat belt defect was reported to the dealer and the reply was " they are all like that".
