Nissan recalls

 

For Models: Nissan Altima, Nissan Frontier, Nissan Pathfinder, Nissan Rogue, Nissan Sentra, Nissan Versa, Nissan Xterra

Body, Interior & Misc., September 16, 2010

RepairPal Expert Overview:

Nissan is recalling 2008–2010 models equipped with Garmin Nuvi 750 navigation systems because the battery may overheat, which could lead to a fire. Nissan will notify owners and Garmin technicians will replace the unit's battery and insert a spacer to prevent the problem from reoccurring. This will be performed free of charge.

For Models: Nissan Cube

Engine, September 13, 2010

RepairPal Expert Overview:

Nissan is recalling 2009–2010 Cube models for failing to meet federal safety requirements on fuel system integrity. When the vehicle was rotated following a rear-moving barrier crash test (a test required by the government), the amount of fuel leakage exceeded the allowable limits. Fuel leakage could result in a fire. Dealers will install a special protector and attach it to the gasoline recirculation tube, free of charge.

For Models: Nissan Armada

Body, Interior & Misc., August 30, 2010

RepairPal Expert Overview:

Nissan is recalling 2010 Armada models for failing to comply with federal safety requirements concerning seating systems. The second row center seat hinge was manufactured out of specification, which may prevent the rear center seat back from fully locking in the in-use, or upright, position. This increases the risk of injury to the seat occupant in the event of a crash. Dealers will inspect the hinge/lock and, if needed, install a new one.

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, July 12, 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.
