Recall 15V573000

Front Coil Springs Fracture Due To Corrosion

Recall Details

The front coil springs may corrode and fracture due to exposure to road sale used in cold weather states. Dealers will replace both front coil springs free of charge to resolve the concern.

Our Quick Take

The front coil springs may corrode and fracture when exposed to road salt in cold weather states that use it. If a spring breaks, it may contact the tire and cause tire failure resulting in loss of vehicle control. 

What Should You Do?

Recalls on your Nissan vehicle must be performed by a Nissan dealership. Nissan will begin notifying known owners of affected vehicles in November 2015. If you do 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.
