Nissan Xterra recalls

 

For Models: Nissan Frontier, Nissan Pathfinder, Nissan Xterra

Suspension & Steering, October 2, 2012

RepairPal Expert Overview:

Certain vehicles may have been equipped with front wheel hubs that may not meet the design hardness specifications. A wheel hub that was manufactured below hardness specification may wear prematurely and eventually crack. If the vehicle is driven in this condition, the wheel hub may break, possibly resulting in a vehicle crash. Dealers will replace the left and right side front wheel hub assemblies to correct this concern.

For Models: Infiniti FX35, Infiniti FX50, Infiniti M37, Infiniti M56, Nissan Frontier, Nissan NV1500, Nissan Pathfinder, Nissan Xterra

Engine, December 19, 2011

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.

 

For Models: Nissan Frontier, Nissan Xterra

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.

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