Recall 15V012000

Reduced Braking Performance And Steering Control

Recall Details

The vehicle's front hubs were assembled without being properly tightened, which may result in a brake caliper separating from the wheel. This can cause reduced braking ability and steering control. Dealers will tighten any loose bolts to the proper specification free of charge to correct this concern.

Our Quick Take

The vehicle's front wheel hub assemblies may not be tightened properly, resulting in reduced braking performance and steering control. This could lead to an accident.

What Should You Do?

Recalls on your Nissan or Infiniti must be performed by a Nissan or Infiniti dealership, respectively. Nissan began notifying known owners of affected vehicles beginning in February, 2015. 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 or Infiniti 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.
