Check your Nissan

In order to determine the recall status of your Nissan, you will need to know your vehicle identification number, or ‘VIN’. Your VIN is a unique 17 character serial number that can be found on your vehicle (such as the passenger side door sill) or in documentation (such as registration papers). If your VIN is unable to be validated, please recheck your VIN and contact 1800 988 334 to verify if your vehicle is affected. If your vehicle was imported and not originally supplied by Nissan Australia (Grey Import or similar), please contact the vehicle supplier for further information.

Further Information

Even though your vehicle may not currently be under active recall, it may later be recalled. Please check the Recall Initiation Schedule for all planned future recalls. While Nissan will seek to contact affected Consumers directly at the relevant time, we may be unable to do so if your contact details are not accurate and available to us.

If your airbag has been replaced by a previous recall, it may still need to be recalled if Nissan determines the replacement was also an Affected Takata Airbag Inflator. This is to ensure long term safety.

If your vehicle has had a frontal airbag replaced following a collision or other incident, any replacement airbag installed in the Vehicle may be faulty and require replacement, please contact a Nissan dealer or other authorised representative to arrange for the airbag to be checked.
