Nissan Xterra Recall Details

RepairPal Expert Overview on July 12, 2010

Nissan is recalling certain 2004 - 2010 Titan, Armada, & QX56 vehicles. Also included are 2005 - 2010 Frontier, Xterra, and Pathfinder vehicles for faulty front and/or rear lower control arms in the vehicle's suspension systems. According to the automaker, the problem lies in the control arm's attaching point to the vehicle's chassis. These are called "Cylindrical Collars" and they are welded to the control arm. During the manufacturing process, some collars may contain welds that do not meet Nissan's strength specifications, resulting in the collars possibly separating from the control arm/s. Should this happen, the vehicle handling might possibly diminish to the degree that a crash could occur.

Owners are advised to call their local dealer with their vehicle's VIN number and dealers will conduct a database search to determine if the vehicle is involved in this recall from Nissan.

A problem with the fuel tank may cause the gas gauge never to read below a quarter tank of gas even when the tank might be empty. If the vehicle runs out of gas in traffic, you might become stranded or get into an accident.

We at RepairPal have designated this a high priority recall; the gas gauge may not read correctly. 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.

RepairPal Expert Overview on January 26, 2009

The air bag system uses "crash" sensors that monitor the vehicle and detect an impact that requires air bag deployment. Some of these sensors are located in the front of the vehicle. The front crash zone sensor is located in an area that can build up with road salt and debris. This can cause corrosion to build up around the front crash sensors, and cause an interruption of electrical signal. If this happens, your air bag light will come on and the air bag system will not operate in a collision.

We at RepairPal have designated this a medium priority recall; this would change to high if the air bag light comes on. 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.
