RepairPal Expert Overview on April 20, 2011

In areas where winter road salt is used, rust may form on the strut tower. The strut housing may crack, leading to a grinding noise and increased steering effort. In certain cases, the steering column could break, resulting in a loss of steering control, increasing the risk of a crash.

This could be considered a medium priority recall; this would change to high if any noise or other issues are noted with the steering. Please contact your Nissan or Infiniti dealer. They will check to see if your specific vehicle is affected and advise you on what to do next. Always have your vehicle identification number (VIN) handy when you call.
