RepairPal Expert Overview
The gear position indicator may not match the actual gear shift lever position on vehicles with a steering column mounted shift lever.
Owners of affected vehicles will be notified beginning April 8, 2013. If you are experiencing problems with the gear shift indicator, or you don't receive recall notification and you feel you should have, please contact your Nissan dealer. They may ask for your vehicle identification number (VIN), so please have it handy when you call.
Vehicles equipped with a column mounted gear shift lever are being recalled because the shift indicator could indicate the wrong gear position. This is because the gear selector plate lock clip may have been installed incorrectly and will not hold its position due to normal road vibration. If the display is incorrect, the operator may think the vehicle is secured in Park when it is not. As a result the vehicle could roll unexpectedly, increasing the risk of personal injury or a crash. Nissan dealers will check and correct the installation of the transmission lever gear selector plate lock clip to correct this concern.
