Nissan recalls

 

For Models: Nissan Sentra

Brakes, December 14, 2009

RepairPal Expert Overview:

The brake master cylinder may leak fluid. This may cause extended stopping distances, and eventually a loss of braking capability. Dealers will replace the master cylinder brake booster assembly. This recall began on December 14, 2009.

For Models: Nissan Rogue

Suspension & Steering, November 30, 2009

RepairPal Expert Overview:

The steering gear housing retainer screw could come loose and allow a loss of steering control in extreme circumstances. Dealers will re-secure the fastener and install a cover plate to prevent the screw from coming out again. This recall began during November 2009.

For Models: Infiniti M35, Infiniti M45, Nissan Cube, Nissan Murano, Nissan Rogue

Electrical & Lights, November 9, 2009

RepairPal Expert Overview:

Nissan is recalling certain 2008–2010 model year vehicles in areas of the country with heavy concentrations of road salt usage. The fastener used to secure the sensor of the tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS) may corrode and crack. If this occurs, the fastener may detach from the sensor and the TPMS light will illuminate. Dealers will replace the fastener with a more robust fastener.

For Models: Nissan Altima, Nissan Maxima

Suspension & Steering, October 8, 2009

RepairPal Expert Overview:

Nissan has recalled 2009-2010 Altima and Maxima models because the upper front strut insulators may have been manufactured out of specification, which may cause the strut insulator to crack. If this happens, the strut rod may come out of its mounting position, which could affect vehicle stability and lead to a crash. Dealers will replace both left and right side front strut insulators free of charge.

For Models: Nissan Murano

Engine, August 24, 2009

RepairPal Expert Overview:

Nissan is recalling 2003–2007 Murano models because the intake air ducts may separate from the resonator with engine movement. This may cause the engine to stall, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will inspect and repair/replace the components free of charge.

For Models: Nissan Frontier, Nissan Pathfinder, Nissan Xterra

Body, Interior & Misc., January 26, 2009

RepairPal Expert Overview:

The air bag crash sensors located in the front zone may have corrosion buildup due to a high level of road salt exposure. If this happens, the sensor may become inoperative, and the air bag light will come on. If this happens, the air bags will not deploy in a collision. This recall began on January 26, 2009.

For Models: Infiniti EX35, Infiniti G35, Infiniti G37, Nissan 350Z, Nissan Altima, Nissan Altima Hybrid, Nissan Murano, Nissan Rogue

Body, Interior & Misc., November 4, 2008

RepairPal Expert Overview:

This recall affects certain vehicles equipped Occupant Classification System (OCS) control units manufactured by Continental Automotive Systems. A varistor in the OCS control unit may have been manufactured out of specification. Under certain conditions, this could interupt the signal between the OCS and the air bag control unit (ACU), causing the passenger air bag to be suppressed in an accident. If the air bag does not deploy when needed in a crash, the risk of injury is increased. Dealers will test the signal between the OCS and ACU with a special tool to verify proper function. The seat cushion containing the OCS hardware will be replaced as necessary. The recall began November 4, 2008.

For Models: Nissan Altima

Suspension & Steering, September 15, 2008

RepairPal Expert Overview:

Nissan is recalling 2009 Altima models with 16-inch alloy wheels because they may not have been manufactured to specification, which can cause one or more of the five lug nuts attaching the wheel to the vehicle to become loose. If they become loose, it could lead to a loss of control and a crash. Dealers will replace affected wheels.

For Models: Infiniti QX56, Nissan Armada, Nissan Titan

Heating & Air Conditioning, August 2, 2008

RepairPal Expert Overview:

The AC condenser fan motor in the engine compartment may not be sealed properly against water intrusion and it may not have proper drainage. Water intrusion may lead to corrosion and possibly overheating of the motor, and a fire. Dealers will install a "thermal protector kit" and test and replace the AC condenser fan motor if needed. The recall began August 2, 2008.

For Models: Nissan Altima

Suspension & Steering, July 31, 2008

RepairPal Expert Overview:

Nissan is recalling 2008 Altima models because the left side front suspension transverse link bolt may not have been tightened to specification. If the bolt were to become loose and fall out while the vehicle is being driven, the driver may experience loss of control, which could result in a crash. Dealers will tighten the transverse link bolt to specification.
