The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration says the vehicle occupant classification software inside the affected vehicles may not recognize when a passenger is sitting in the front passenger seat. As a result, the airbag may be deactivated in the event of a crash.

The NHTSA says the airbags did not deploy in two accidents.

The affected vehicles include the 2013-2014 Altima sedan, Sentra and Pathfinder; 2013-2014 Leaf; 2013 Infinity JX35; 2014 Infinity Q50 and QX60; and the 2013 Nissan NV 200.

The necessary repairs involve an upgrade of the software in the affected vehicles at Nissan dealerships, and will be performed for free starting in mid April.
