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.
