RepairPal Expert Overview
Our Quick Take:
Certain bolts in the front suspension/steering may not have been properly tightened during vehicle assembly. The affected bolts could become loose and fall out.
What Should You Do?
Nissan will notify owners of affected vehicles beginning October 29, 2012. If you feel looseness in the steering, notice an abnormal noise from the front suspension, 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.
These vehicles may have been assembled with transverse link bolts and power steering rack bolts that were not torqued to proper specification. The affected bolts could become loose and fall out, which may lead to a loss of vehicle control, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will tighten the bolts to the proper torque specifications to correct this concern.
