Recalls on your Nissan must be performed by a Nissan dealership. Nissan began notifying known owners of affected vehicles beginning in August, 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 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.
