Sensors on certain models have been recalled by Nissan and will be replaced as necessary. Please visit our recall section for this model to see if your vehicle is covered by this recall.
The external seal on the engine oil cooler can fail and create an oil leak.
The catalytic converter closest to the cylinder head can fail causing illumination of the Check Engine Light. Prompt repair of this problem is recommended because the catalyst material can be sucked into the engine and cause internal damage.

The front brake caliper bolts may not be tightened properly. This can result in the calipers becoming detached, reducing braking ability. Dealers will inspect and tighten the bolts as necessary free of charge to resolve the concern.
The occupant classification system may malfunction, resulting in the front passenger air bag not deploying when needed in an accident. Dealers will update the system software free of charge to resolve the concern.
The secondary hood latch may bind, and as a result, the hood may not be fully secured. This could cause the hood to open unexpectedly while driving. Dealers will correct the problem free of charge (the procedure is unavailable as of the time of this writing).
