Recall 18V240000

Vehicles With Accessories Have Incorrect Load Carrying Capacity Labels

Recall Details

For vehicles with accessories added, a replacement load carrying capacity label may not have been installed, resulting in the vehicle possibly getting unintentionally overloaded. Nissan will provide owners with a new modification label with installation instructions free of charge. Dealers may assist owners with installation at their request, free of charge to resolve the concern.

Our Quick Take

For vehicles that have been modified by the installation of accessories, the load carrying capacity may have been reduced when these accessories were installed, but a replacement load carrying capacity label was not installed to reflect the new load capacity. This could lead to inadvertent overloading of the vehicle, resulting in an accident.

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 June, 2018. 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.
