The 2012 Nissan Versa is currently being investigated by the NHTSA because of some problems with the SRS warning light and the possibility of the airbag not deploying in an accident.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the 2012 Nissan Versa is currently being investigated by the Office of Defect Investigations after some reports were received from owners related to the SRS warning light. The NHTSA says that the SRS warning light might be triggered by a pinched spiral cable assembly in the steering column and this pinched cable might stop the airbag for deploying in the case of an accident, increasing the risk of injury.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration didn’t say if this investigation is aimed towards the 2012 Nissan Versa sedan or hatchback because the two of them are completely different models and this report isn’t specifying which version is affected, but rumors are saying that approximately 100,000 units are being affected by this problem. The current investigation conducted by the Office of Defect Investigations from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration might or might not lead to a possible recall but if you are an owner of the 2012 Nissan Versa, a hatchback or a sedan, keep in mind that the model might be under the attention of the feds.
