What Should You Do?

Recalls on your Infiniti must be performed by a Infiniti dealership. Infiniti will notify known owners of affected vehicles beginning in September, 2016. If you do receive a notification, but wish to check to see if your vehicle is included, please contact one of your local 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.
