Nissan recalls

 

For Models: Nissan Pathfinder, Nissan Pickup (D21)

Body, Interior & Misc., November 25, 1996

Summary: THE LATCH PLATE USED IN THE SEAT BELT BUCKLE WAS NOT MANUFACTURED ACCORDING TO DESIGN DIMENSIONS. IF THE SEAT BELT TONGUE IS INSERTED SLOWLY AT AN ANGLE INTO THE BUCKLE, THERE IS A POSSIBILITY OF PARTIAL ENGAGEMENT.

For Models: Nissan Altima

Body, Interior & Misc., October 28, 1996

RepairPal Expert Overview:

Nissan is recalling seat belts on 1997 Altimas because certain buckle assemblies were produced with a "buckle base" that was improperly heat treated, which may cause the "buckle base" to be brittle. The seat belts may not restrain an occupant during a crash, increasing the risk of injury. Dealers will inspect and replace the buckle assemblies.

For Models: Nissan Pathfinder

Suspension & Steering, September 2, 1996

Summary: DUE TO THE TYPE OF LUBRICANT USED IN THE STEERING TRANSFER GEAR ASSEMBLY, THE EFFORT REQUIRED TO TURN THE STEERING WHEEL AT LOW AMBIENT TEMPERATURES (LESS THAN -30 C) COULD INCREASE TO THE POINT WHERE SOME DRIVERS WOULD HAVE DIFFICULTY IN TURNING THE WHEEL.

For Models: Nissan Pathfinder

Brakes, September 2, 1996

Summary: DUE TO THE THICKNESS OF THE CARPET PADDING ON THE TRANSMISSION TUNNEL, THE SPACE BETWEEN THE BRAKE PEDAL AND THE TRANSMISSION TUNNEL COULD CATCH A DRIVER'S RIGHT FOOT UNDER THE BRAKE PEDAL.

For Models: Nissan Quest

Body, Interior & Misc., July 10, 1996

Summary: AN OUT-OF-SPECIFICATION CONDITION IN THE SEAT CABLE ROLLER PULLEY ASSEMBLY CAN ALLOW THE CABLE THAT CONNECTS THE SEAT ADJUST LEVER TO THE LATCH TO BE PINCHED IN THE ROLLER ASSEMBLY.

For Models: Nissan Maxima, Nissan Stanza

Engine, May 15, 1996

RepairPal Expert Overview:

Nissan has recalled 1990-1994 Maxima and 1990-1992 Stanza models because a mixture of mud and salt may get trapped between the fuel filler tube and wheel housing, which can cause corrosion. This can lead to fuel leakage and a possible fire. Also, the left rear seat belt retractor is mounted to the wheel housing, and in the event of significant corrosion, the mounting could fail in a vehicle crash. Dealers will inspect these vehicles and corrective action will be taken depending upon the extent of the corrosion.

For Models: Nissan Quest

Body, Interior & Misc., January 12, 1996

Summary: LEAVES AND OTHER FOREIGN MATERIAL CAN ENTER THROUGH THE COWL PANEL AIR INTAKE DURING OPERATION OF THE FRONT HEATER AND/OR AIR CONDITIONING SYSTEM RESULTING IN A BUILD-UP OF MATERIAL IN THE PLENUM. THIS CAN LEAD TO NOISE, ODORS, OR IN SOME CASES, IGNITION OF THESE MATERIALS.

For Models: Infiniti M30, Infiniti Q45, Nissan 240SX, Nissan Pathfinder, Nissan Sentra

Body, Interior & Misc., September 29, 1995

Summary: THE FRONT SAFETY BELT BUCKLE RELEASE BUTTONS CAN BREAK. THESE RED PLASTIC RELEASE BUTTONS ARE MARKED "PRESS." IF A BUTTON BREAKS, PIECES CAN FALL INTO THE BUCKLE ASSEMBLY CAUSING THE BUCKLE TO OPERATE IMPROPERLY.

For Models: Nissan Altima

Brakes, February 20, 1995

RepairPal Expert Overview:

Nissan is recalling 1995 Altimas because the brake hose for the right rear wheel was routed incorrectly and may make contact with a suspension component, causing abrasion to the hose and eventual leakage. A leaking brake hose reduces braking capability, increases stopping distance, and increases the risk of an accident. Dealers will replace or re-route the right rear brake hose.

For Models: Nissan 200SX, Nissan Sentra

Brakes, February 18, 1995

Summary: THE ANTI-LOCK BRAKING SYSTEM (ABS) HYDRAULIC ACTUATOR WAS NOT PROPERLY PURGED OF ALL AIR DURING THE FILL AND EVACUATION PROCESS CAUSING AIR BUBBLES TO GET INTO THE BRAKE SYSTEM.
