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 suspension lower control arms. The problem is the control arm's attaching point to the vehicle's chassis. During the manufacturing process, some control arms may contain welds that do not meet Nissan's strength specs, and if they break, it may result in loss of vehicle control, and a possible crash.
2004 Nissan Titan Recalls
The rear center seat belt may be too short, making it difficult to pull out after the automatic locking mode has engaged. Due to this difficulty, rear seat occupants may not use the belt consistently, increasing the risk of injury in the event of a crash. Dealers will replace the rear center seat belt to correct this concern. This recall began on June 11, 2007. The Nissan recall number is R0701.
The wiring for the air bag system and front seat belts is routed through the rear doors. The wires may break from bending, due to the opening and closing of the rear doors. If wires break, and short circuit, the seat belt pretensioner may deploy and make the seat belt unusable. It's possible the wires could break and cause the front air bags not to deploy in a crash, increasing the risk of injury. Dealers will replace the wire harness cover with a different type, and reroute the harness. The recall began February 19, 2007.
The column shifter assembly may have been damaged during vehicle assembly. During its use, this could result in failure to be secure in the park position. This could result in the vehicle rolling unexpectedly, increasing the risk of injury or a crash. Dealers will inspect and replace the shifter as necessary. This recall is expected to begin on September 27, 2004. The Nissan recall number is RU403.
The area around the rear seat belt upper anchor may not be sufficiently energy absorbent. This could result in an increased risk of injury if the area is struck in a crash. Dealers will replace the outboard rear seat belt assemblies to correct this concern. This recall began on September 27, 2004. The Nissan recall number is RO406.
