Recalls

Recall
Report Receipt Date:
NHTSA Campaign:
02V146
Summary:
On some passenger vehicles, the pin at the end of the front suspension transverse link (lower control arm) could break where it is mounted to the frame. This can cause a knocking sound and abnormal steering, resulting in difficulty controlling the vehicle and increasing the risk of a crash.
Consequence:
Remedy:
Dealers will replace the transverse links on the left and right sides with new ones. The manufacturer has reported that owner notification began June 24, 2002. Owners who do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact Nissan at 1-800-647-7261.
Air Bags Apr 12, 2013
Report Receipt Date:
Apr 12, 2013
NHTSA Campaign:
13V136000
Summary:
Nissan is recalling certain model year 2001-2003 Maxima, Pathfinder, and Infiniti I35; model year 2002-2003 Infiniti QX4; and model year 2003 Infiniti FX35 and FX45 and possibly certain Sentra vehicles to address a safety defect in the passenger side frontal air bag which may produce excessive internal pressure causing the inflator to rupture upon deployment of the air bag. This recall addresses both the passenger side frontal air bags that were originally installed in the vehicles, as well as replacement air bags that may have been installed as replacement service parts. A replacement air bag may have been installed, as one example, if a vehicle had been in a crash necessitating the replacement of the passenger side frontal air bag.
Consequence:
In the event of a crash necessitating deployment of the passenger's frontal air bag, the inflator could rupture with metal fragments striking and potentially seriously injuring the passenger seat occupant or other occupants
Remedy:
Owners of all vehicles on which a defective air bag may have been installed either as original equipment, or as a replacement, will be notified. Dealers will inspect vehicles, and where a defective air bag inflator is identified, the inflator will be replaced, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin during July 2013. Owners may contact Nissan Customer Service at 1-800-647-7261.
