Recall 13V094000

Vehicle Shift Lever Moves Out Of Park Without Brake Pedal Depressed

Recall Details

The brake shift interlock function may fail, allowing the transmission shift lever mounted on the steering column to be able to be moved from the park position without depressing the brake pedal. Dealers will remedy the vehicles free of charge.

Our Quick Take

The steering column mounted transmission shift lever may be movable from the park position without the brake pedal being depressed. This could cause unintended movement of the vehicle.

What Should You Do?

Recalls on your Nissan must be performed by a Nissan dealership. Nissan notified owners of affected vehicles in April, 2013. If you did not receive a notification, but wish to check to see if your vehicle is included, please contact one of your local Nissan dealerships. They will also check for any other uncompleted recalls on your vehicle. For best results, be prepared to provide your Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) to the service department consultant you speak with.
