2001 Nissan Xterra Owner Comments

problem #5

Sep 142008


  • 80,000 miles


I was traveling at approximately 35 mph when a vehicle pulled out of a business parking lot, the vehicle failed to yield, causing me to collide with her driver door. My concern is that my airbag in my 2001 Nissan Xterra failed to deploy causing me to hit the steering wheel with my chest. I contacted Nissan and the results were that I failed to properly decelerate; this was the cause for the failure.
