Rear Seat Lower Seat Frames Fracture Due To Improper Welds

Recall Details

The rear seat lower seat frames may have insufficient welds, and as a result may fracture. This can cause increased risk of injury to occupants in a crash. Dealers will inspect the seat frames, and replace ones found to be defective free of charge to resolve the concern.

Our Quick Take

The lower seat frames of the rear seats may fracture due to improper welds, resulting in the seat belts not securing passengers sufficiently, increasing risk of injury in a crash.

What Should You Do?

Recall repairs on your Nissan must be performed by a Nissan dealership. Nissan will notify known owners of affected vehicles beginning in December, 2017. 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.
