2007 Nissan Maxima 3.5 SE 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl CVT)
The front passenger air bag off indicator comes on and off while driving. My girlfriend weighs 98 lbs. The dealer and Nissan are unable to solve the issue. On four other Mazimas that we test drove we found that in only my car the airbag off indicator comes on and off. On other cars it is always off meaning the airbag will deploy in case of an accident. In my car the airbag may or may not deploy in case of an accident. This is a passenger safety issue. Nissan tells me that my girlfriend is too light and needs to sit properly on the front seat.They have asked me to have her ride in the back seat on my car.I am having a hard time getting this safety issue resolved with Nissan.

Disclose the weight setting on the seat sensors that activates the airbag. Consumer should be warned about the required minimum weight before buying. Investigate this airbag safety issue. Be consistent in measuring weight and activating the airbag. Do not put passengers at risk.
