2009 Nissan Armada Recalls

RepairPal Expert Overview on July 12, 2010

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.

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.

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.
