RepairPal Expert Overview
Certain vehicles are being recalled because one or both of the front wheel bearing hub assemblies may wear prematurely and eventually crack.
Nissan will notify owners of affected vehicles beginning October 8, 2012. If you notice an abnormal noise from the front wheels, or you don't receive notification and you feel you should have, please contact your dealer. It’s helpful to have your vehicle identification number (VIN) handy when you call.
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.
