What Should You Do?
Nissan will notify owners of affected vehicles beginning in July, 2012. There are no symptoms related to this recall. If you don't receive notification and you feel you should have, please contact your dealer. It’s helpful to have your vehicle identification number (VIN) handy when you call.
Due to a faulty weld, the rear seat back striker may partially separate in a crash. As a result, the rear seat back may not stay properly secured, increasing the risk of injury to rear seat occupants. Dealers will replace affected seat back strikers to correct this concern.
