Recall 13V645000

Improper Weight And Load Rating On Certification Label

Recall Details

The vehicle weight rating as listed on the vehicle certification label is misprinted to a weight too large for the vehicle to carry. Nissan will provide a new label to replace the incorrect one free of charge to resolve the concern.

Our Quick Take

The printed weight capacity rating on the vehicle certification label on the driver's side door jam lists a rating too high for the vehicle to handle carrying, and can result in tire failure and loss of vehicle control if the vehicle is loaded that heavily.

What Should You Do?

Recalls on your Nissan vehicle must be performed by a Nissan dealership. Nissan began notifying known owners of affected vehicles when the recall was announced, in January 2014. 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 dealers below. 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.

Summary
Nissan North America, Inc. (Nissan) is recalling certain 2014 model year Titan King Cab and Crew Cab pick-up trucks manufactured August 27, 2013, through November 13, 2013. In the affected vehicles, the Tire and Loading Information label overstates the maximum load and passenger carrying capacity of the vehicle. Thus, these vehicles fail to comply with Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 110, "Tire Selection and Rims for Passenger Cars."
Consequence
If the vehicle is loaded to the capacity stated on the incorrect label, and the tire load capacity is exceeded, the vehicle may experience structural damage to the tire. If this occurs, this may lead to tire failure which could increase the risk of a crash.
Remedy
Nissan will notify owners and will provide owners with a correct label to install, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin on January 21, 2014. Owners may contact Nissan at 1-800-647-7261.
Notify
Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.
