The tire information label may not contain the rim (wheel) size information. This could lead to an incorrect tire/wheel combination being installed on the vehicle, increasing the risk of a crash. Nissan will supply owners with a new label and installation instructions. Owners who wish to do so may bring their vehicle to a Nissan dealer who will install the label for them.
Nissan Titan Recalls
The vehicle seating capacity may be incorrect on the tire information label on certain vehicles equipped with the sports appearance package. This could lead to vehicle overloading, increasing the risk of a crash. Nissan will supply owners with a new label and installation instructions. The owner has the option of taking their vehicle to a Nissan dealer to have the label installed.
Nissan is recalling certain 2004 - 2010 Titan, Armada, & QX56 vehicles. Also included are 2005 - 2010 Frontier, Xterra, and Pathfinder vehicles for faulty front and/or rear suspension lower control arms. The problem is the control arm's attaching point to the vehicle's chassis. During the manufacturing process, some control arms may contain welds that do not meet Nissan's strength specs, and if they break, it may result in loss of vehicle control, and a possible crash.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Manually adjusted front seats may not properly engage the locking pawl. In the event of a crash, the seat could move without warning, increasing the risk of injury. Dealers will inspect the seat tracks and replace the seat assembly as necessary. This recall is scheduled to begin on May 27, 2008.
The tire information label may be printed with the incorrect vehicle weight rating. Updated labels and installation instructions will be mailed to the owners of affected vehicles. This recall is scheduled to begin on February 25, 2008. The Nissan recall number is R0802.
The rear center seat belt may be too short, making it difficult to pull out after the automatic locking mode has engaged. Due to this difficulty, rear seat occupants may not use the belt consistently, increasing the risk of injury in the event of a crash. Dealers will replace the rear center seat belt to correct this concern. This recall began on June 11, 2007. The Nissan recall number is R0701.
