Re: Is your Nissan affected by dangerous airbag safety recall?

Rhett, my 2004 4.8 is on the list. Nissan also phoned me earlier this week. I'm now waiting for the local Nissan dealership to contact me with confirmation of the date.

Problem solved!

4x4Megaworld in Edenvale also generously offered me a wind deflector, no cost. Apparently they have a whole pile of them. But this one was quite a bit closer.
