Nissan recalls

 

For Models: Nissan Frontier

Body, Interior & Misc., August 30, 2010

RepairPal Expert Overview:

Nissan is recalling 2010 Frontier King Cab models for failing to comply with federal safety standards concerning child restraint anchorage systems. The weld between the tether anchor and seat gusset bracket is out of specification. This can cause the tether anchorage to separate from the vehicle seat, increasing the risk of injury. The tether anchorage will be replaced free of charge.

For Models: Infiniti QX4, Nissan Pathfinder

Body, Interior & Misc., August 19, 2010

Summary: NISSAN IS RECALLING FORTY-SIX CERTAIN MODEL YEAR 2002 PATHFINDER AND INFINITI QX4 VEHICLES MANUFACTURED FROM AUGUST 24, 2001 THROUGH AUGUST 28, 2001. THE AIR BAG INFLATOR CONTAINS PROPELLANT WAFERS THAT ARE REQUIRED TO PROPERLY DEPLOY THE FRONT PASSENGER AIR BAG. DUE TO IMPROPER PROPELLANT WAFER INSTALLATION DURING THE AIR BAG INFLATOR ASSEMBLY PROCESS, SOME AIR BAG INFLATORS MAY BE MISSING ONE OF THE WAFERS. AS A RESULT, THE REMAINING WAFERS IN THE INFLATOR USED FOR THE DEPLOYMENT OF THE FRONT PASSENGER AIR BAG MAY, OVER TIME, BREAK UP INTO POWDER DUE TO NORMAL VIBRATION EXPERIENCED WHILE DRIVING. THIS CAUSES THE COMBUSTION RATE OF THE PROPELLANT TO INCREASE INSIDE THE INFLATOR, WHICH CAN LEAD TO INTERNAL PRESSURE RISING SUDDENLY DURING AIR BAG DEPLOYMENT.

For Models: Infiniti QX56, Nissan Armada

Body, Interior & Misc., August 16, 2010

RepairPal Expert Overview:

The A-pillar trim finishers may impede proper side curtain air bag deployment. This could cause occupant injury during a collision. Dealers will replace the A-pillar finishers. This recall began on August 16, 2010.

For Models: Infiniti QX56, Nissan Armada, Nissan Frontier, Nissan Pathfinder, Nissan Titan, Nissan Xterra

Suspension & Steering, May 20, 2010

RepairPal Expert Overview:

Welds on the mounting collars of the front lower control arm may not meet specifications. A failed control arm increases the risk of a crash. Dealers will repair the vehicles as necessary. This recall is scheduled to begin by May 20, 2010.

For Models: Nissan Altima

Body, Interior & Misc., May 13, 2010

RepairPal Expert Overview:

Nissan is recalling 2010 Altima models because some of the front side member assembly components may not have been welded to specification due to a tool maintenance error. This can affect the vehicle's crash performance. Dealers will inspect and repair free of charge.

For Models: Nissan Pathfinder, Nissan Xterra

Body, Interior & Misc., April 19, 2010

RepairPal Expert Overview:

The fasteners securing the passenger air bag and the steering shaft positioning bracket may not have been tightened correctly. The passenger side air bag may not deploy as designed. Also, the steering column may become loose, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will inspect the fasteners in question, replace any that are missing, and properly torque all affected fasteners to the proper specification. This recall is expected to begin by April 19, 2010. 

For Models: Nissan Frontier, Nissan Pathfinder, Nissan Xterra

Body, Interior & Misc., March 22, 2010

RepairPal Expert Overview:

The molded fuel tank can warp, creating interference with the fuel sender float arm and fuel tank. This would cause the fuel gauge never to read below a quarter tank of fuel even if it's empty. If the vehicle runs out of gas in traffic, you might become stranded or get into an accident. Dealers will replace the fuel level sending unit with one that has a modified float arm. The recall began March 22, 2010.

For Models: Infiniti QX56, Nissan Armada, Nissan Titan

Engine, March 22, 2010

RepairPal Expert Overview:

The instrument panel fuel gauge may show fuel in the fuel tank when there is none, typically about 1/4 when the tank is empty. This could cause the vehicle to run out of gas and stall, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will replace the fuel sender unit inside the fuel tank to correct this concern. This recall is expected to begin on March 22, 2010.

For Models: Infiniti QX56, Nissan Armada, Nissan Quest, Nissan Titan

Brakes, March 22, 2010

RepairPal Expert Overview:

The pin that secures the brake pedal to the mounting bracket may become dislodged. This would cause the pedal to become loose, and could compromise braking action. Dealers will inspect the pivot pin area and replace the brake pedal assembly if necessary. This recall began on March 22, 2010.
