On 131 vehicles, the accessory tow hitch may not have been tightened properly. If the tow hitch loosens and separates from the vehicle, a crash could occur without warning.

Please contact your Nissan 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.
