There are interior trim pieces that are to the left and right of the windshield. This trim may have been manufactured with a fastener that keeps the side curtain air bag from deploying properly in a collision.

We at RepairPal have designated this a high priority recall; trim pieces that affect proper side curtain air bag deployment need to be repaired to restore the highest level of safety. Please contact your Nissan or Infiniti dealer. They will check to see if your specific vehicle is affected and advise you on what to do next. Always have your vehicle identification number (VIN) handy when you call.

Nissan is recalling certain 2004 - 2010 Titan, Armada, & QX56 vehicles. Also included are 2005 - 2010 Frontier, Xterra, and Pathfinder vehicles for faulty front and/or rear lower control arms in the vehicle's suspension systems. According to the automaker, the problem lies in the control arm's attaching point to the vehicle's chassis. These are called "Cylindrical Collars" and they are welded to the control arm. During the manufacturing process, some collars may contain welds that do not meet Nissan's strength specifications, resulting in the collars possibly separating from the control arm/s. Should this happen, the vehicle handling might possibly diminish to the degree that a crash could occur.

Owners are advised to call their local dealer with their vehicle's VIN number and dealers will conduct a database search to determine if the vehicle is involved in this recall from Nissan. Additionally, owners can access recall info from Nissan's website at: http://www.nissanusa.com/recalls-vin?next=site_search.best_match.link#/. Nissan can be reached via phone at: 1-800-647-7261 and Infiniti at: 1-800-662-6200. Another route one can take is to go to NHTSA's website @ www.safercar.gov and conduct a recall database search or call the NHTSA's Vehicle Safety Hotline at: 1-888-327-4236.

The fuel gauge may read incorrectly, showing fuel when the tank is empty. This could cause the vehicle to run out of gas and stall, increasing the risk of a crash.

Please contact your Nissan or Infiniti dealer. They will check to see if your specific vehicle is affected and advise you on what to do next. Always have your vehicle identification number (VIN) handy when you call.

The brake pedal is mounted under the driver's dash area onto a bracket. At this point of mounting, there is a pin that could slide out. This could cause the pedal to detach from the bracket. If this happens, the brake pedal would feel unusual and loose, and braking action may be compromised.

We at RepairPal have designated this a medium priority recall; this would change to high if any problems are noted with the brake pedal. Please contact your Nissan or Infiniti dealer. They will check to see if your specific vehicle is affected and advise you on what to do next. Always have your vehicle identification number (VIN) handy when you call.
