Recall 16V219000

Lift Gate Support Stays Fail

Recall Details

The lift gate support stays may corrode due to a lack of sufficient anti-corrosion treatment. This could cause the support stays to break, and the lift gate to fall from an open position. Dealers will replace the rear lift gate stays free of charge to resolve the concern.

Our Quick Take

The support stays that hold the lift gate in the open position may corrode and break, resulting in the lift gate falling from the open position. This could cause serious injury.

What Should You Do?

Recalls on your Nissan must be performed by a Nissan dealership. Nissan will begin notifying known owners of affected vehicles in June, 2016. 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 dealerships. They will also check for any other incomplete recalls on your vehicle. For best results, be prepared to provide your Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) to the service department consultant you speak with.
