RepairPal Expert Overview:

Due to interference between the shifter rod and the shift knob, vehicles with an automatic transmission may be shifted out of "Park" without depressing the brake pedal. If the shifter is moved from the "Park" position without the brake pedal depressed, the vehicle may roll unexpectedly, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will replace the shift knob or shifter assembly as necessary to correct this concern.

 

RepairPal Expert Overview:

Some of the bolts that attach the engine oil cooler and filter to the engine may have been manufactured below specification strength. As a result, the bolt may break at the oil filter attachment point, which can cause an engine oil leak. Loss of too much engine oil can result in loss of oil pressure and the engine could seize, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will replace the connector bolts to correct this concern.

Suspension & Steering, April 20, 2011
RepairPal Expert Overview:

In areas where winter road salt is used, a mixture of snow/water and salt may enter an assembly location hole in the upper strut housing. This corrosive mixture can collect on the mating surface of the strut housing panel and the inner hood ledge assembly; over time, this can cause rusting of the strut tower housing. The rust can weaken the housing, causing it to crack and pull away from the inner hood ledge assembly. This can lead to grinding noises and increased steering effort, which, if severe enough, can cause the steering column to break. This would result in a loss of steering control, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will inspect the strut housing and repair the vehicles as necessary. An interim notification letter should be mailed to owners prior to May 16, 2011.

Suspension & Steering, November 12, 2010
RepairPal Expert Overview:

Nissan is recalling 2002–2004 Frontier and Exterra models due to corrosion in the lower steering column joint that can limit movement of the joint, resulting in excessive load. This can lead to cracking of the shaft, which may result in loss of steering control, increasing the risk of a crash. Nissan will replace the steering column shaft and joint with a different design, free of charge.
