Nissan recalls Sentras that may lose motive power

Franklin, TN May 14, 2024 – Nissan (OTCMKTS:NSANY) is recalling 9,645 2024 Nissan Sentra sedans cars that may lose power. This ups the chances of an accident and injury.

Recall summary

Driveshafts transfer power to the wheels, allowing cars to move forward.

In the affected vehicles, the left-hand driveshaft was not fitted correctly and may lose contact with the transmission, resulting in a transmission fluid leak and potentially, a loss of power.

Recall risks

For the risks of this recall, please visit this article about a similar Mercedes-Benz recall.

Warning signs

Low transmission fluid level may cause “jerking and hesitation” and trigger the malfunction indicator light (MIL) on the dashboard.  

Other Nissan recalls

Back in September 2023, Nissan recalled nearly a quarter of a million Sentra sedans that could lose steering, as reported.

In March, the automaker issued two separate recalls for faulty seatbelts – one concerning Pathfinder SUVs and the other including Rogue SUVs, also as reported.

The repair

Dealers will replace the driveshaft and the transmission free of charge, if needed.

The notifications to the owners will be sent on June 20, 2024.

Nissan recalls new Pathfinder and Infiniti SUVs with faulty seat belts

Franklin, TN – March 26, 2024 – Nissan (OTCMKTS:NSANY), which owns the Infiniti brand, is recalling 12,019 SUVs because their seat belts may not “properly restrain” the driver in an accident. This ups the risk of injury.

The following models are affected by this recall: 

  • 2024 Nissan Pathfinder
  • 2024 Infiniti QX60

Recall summary

When there is a crash, the seat belt tightens against the occupant torso to prevent him from flying through the windshield. This is achieved thanks to the seat belt pretensioner, as reported.

The pretensioner in the affected cars is missing a metal pin used to hold it together. As a result, it may not work as intended.

Recall risks

If the driver is not properly restrained during a crash, he or she may suffer greater injuries.

Other Nissan recalls

Earlier this month, Nissan recalled over 9,700 Rogue SUVs whose pretensioners were bent during the manufacturing process, as reported.

Over 230,000 Sentra sedans were recalled for the second time in September 2023 due to the loss of steering, also as reported.

The repair

Dealers will replace the faulty pretensioners free of charge. 

Owners should receive letters with more information on April 18, 2024.

Nissan recalls Rogue SUVs with faulty seat belts

Franklin, TN – March 14, 2024 – Nissan (OTCMKTS:NSANY) is recalling 9,720 2023 Nissan Rogue SUVs whose seat belts may not operate as intended in a crash, increasing the risk of an injury. 

Recall summary

The seat belt pretensioner is a safety device that pulls the seat belt firmly against the passenger’s torso in a crash to reduce the risk of injury. The affected SUVs ended up with “crimped” pretensioners in the “driver and front passenger seat belts” due to a supplier error. 

As a result, they may not work correctly in a crash and fail to protect the occupants.

Recall risks

The lack of restraint may result in an injury in a crash.

Other Nissan recalls

Electrical issues that resulted in a stall were a cause of a Nissan Ariya recall that took place in November 2023, as reported.

In September 2023, Nissan recalled over 150,000 sedans over defective rearview cameras, also as reported.

The repair

Dealers will replace both the front passenger and driver’s seat belt assemblies free of charge. 

Owners should receive letters with more information on April 19, 2024.

Nissan recalls 2023 Ariya SUVs that may stall 

Franklin, TN – November 1, 2023 – Nissan (OTCMKTS:NSANY) is recalling 9,813 2023 Nissan Ariya electric SUVs that they may shut down. This ups the risk of a crash and injury, especially if it happens in dense traffic. 

Recall summary  

The motors of the affected vehicles are powered by inverters which convert direct current (DC) stored in batteries into alternating current (AC) to propel the car forward.

Due to the intrusion of foreign particles into the motor, it may experience a short circuit. The short will shut off the inverter, resulting in a stall.

Nissan says that the power should be restored following a “vehicle power off and restart.” However, there is at least one instance where the driver was not able to restart the car and was stranded on the side of the road “for over an hour” waiting for a tow.

Recall risks

The risks of a stall are described in this article about a similar recall.

Warning signs

An “EV System Off” warning message will be shown on the display prior to the stall.

Safety tips

If you are stuck on the side of the road, get out of the car through the passenger door and do not stand too close to the vehicle to avoid getting struck by a distracted driver.

Other Nissan recalls

Nissan Sentra vehicles are subject to a September recall caused by the loss of steering, as reported.

Sentras were also included in another September recall caused by faulty rearview cameras, also as reported.

The repair

Dealers will update the inverter software free of charge.

Owners should have received letters with more information on October 20, 2023.

The following vehicles are affected by this recall: 

  • 2019 – 2021 Nissan Altima
  • 2020 – 2021 Nissan Sentra

Recall summary  

In the affected vehicles, a design flaw with the rearview camera harness may result in damage caused by movement and vibration every time the vehicle is used. This could lead to the display image being distorted, blurry or even blank.

Recall risks

All risks caused by an inoperable rearview camera are explained in this article about a similar GM recall.

Other Nissan recalls

In December of last year, there was another Nissan rearview camera recall affecting over 27,000 Titan, Frontier and Rogue vehicles, as reported.

In September 2022, there was a Nissan Sentra recall due to the risk of steering loss. This was the second recall for the same issue since 2021, also as reported.

Nissan issues second recall for Sentra sedans that may lose steering

Franklin, TN – September 3, 2023 – Nissan (OTCMKTS:NSANY) has recalled 236,238 2020-2022 Nissan Sentra sedans that may lose steering. The defect greatly increases the risk of a crash and injury for everyone involved.

This is the second recall for the same issue since 2021. Vehicles repaired under the previous recall might need a new remedy.

Drivers are encouraged to contact their dealership for “transport instructions” if they experience steering issues. 

Recall summary  

The steering mechanism on a car is connected to the front wheels with tie rods, which turn them left or right when the driver is turning the steering wheel. Affected vehicles were fitted with insufficiently strong rods, which could bend out of shape – or break – under high loads, such as when hitting a curb. This reduces the driver’s ability to control the vehicle and may lead to “a partial loss of steering.”

Recall risks

A vehicle that is difficult to control is more likely to be involved in an accident, upping the risk of an injury.  

Warning signs  

The driver may notice that “the steering wheel [is] off-center” or vibrates.

Safety tips

For tips on how to keep yourself and your loved ones safe if you drive one of the affected vehicles, please see this article about the previous recall.

Background of the recall

The first recall for this issue occurred in August 2021. Between January and August 2023, the manufacturer received four warranty claims and 91 field reports alleging “off-center steering” as a result of broken or bent rods.  Additionally, at least five accidents have occurred on the back of the defect.

While the current recall appears to be an extension of the previous one, the production dates for the vehicles involved also overlap. This means that some of the previously repaired vehicles might need a new remedy. 

Other Nissan recalls

Just last month, over 11,000 Kicks and Versa cars were recalled due to power steering issues, as reported.

The repair

The manufacturer is designing an upgraded version of the tie rod, which is expected to be made available in the winter. In the meantime, dealers will replace any broken or bent ones with the currently available version.

All repairs and spare parts will be free of charge. 

Owners should receive letters with more information on October 5, 2023.

Nissan recalls Kicks and Versa cars for the second time due to steering problem 

Franklin, TN  – August 26, 2023 – Nissan (OTCMKTS:NSANY) has announced a recall for 11,824 vehicles due to a problem with the power steering feature, which ups the risk of a crash. 

This recall includes vehicles that were part of a previous recall conducted last year. At the time, these vehicles were judged not to need the replacement of the faulty part.

The affected vehicles include:

  • 2021 Nissan Kicks 
  • 2021 Nissan Versa 

Recall summary  

The affected vehicles have an unstable electrical connection within the sensor that “measures the force the driver applies to the steering wheel during turns.” This can result in the power steering feature being disabled.

Recall risks

All the risks are described in the previous article about the issue.

Warning signs

Drivers may see the power steering warning light come on on the dashboard before the car switches into the “manual steering mode.”

Background of the recall

Nissan previously recalled the 2021 Kicks and Versa models in September 2022. Dealers inspected the cars and replaced the steering sensor assembly on some cars to address the issue.

Earlier this year, the supplier behind the faulty part informed that there were additional cars that needed the assembly replaced based on their own investigation.

Nissan recalls SUVs whose driver seats may detach from frame

Franklin, TN – May 6, 2023 – Nissan (OTCMKTS:NSANY), which owns the Infiniti brand, is issuing a recall for 12,400 SUVs due to the risk of the driver seat coming off its frame in the event of a crash. This may result in a serious injury if there is an accident.

The recall covers the following models: 

  • 2023 Infiniti QX60
  • 2023 Nissan Pathfinder
  • 2023 Nissan Rogue

Recall summary

The driver’s seat on a vehicle is mounted on rails, enabling the user to adjust the legroom and find the ideal driving position.

Due to a supplier error, the seat in the affected vehicles may not be fully attached to the rails, potentially leading to its sliding off in the event of a crash.

Recall risks

The defect could lead to the driver getting thrown in the air and injured in the event of the crash.     

Other Nissan recalls

In July 2022, Nissan recalled Nissan Frontier and Nissan Titan trucks over a problem with the transmission, which could cause the vehicles to roll away even when in Park, as reported.

Nissan recalls SUVs, trucks over detaching airbag cover emblems

Franklin, TN – March 4, 2023 – Nissan (OTCMKTS:NSANY) has issued a recall for 404,690 vehicles because of the driver’s side airbag cover emblems that may detach when the airbag deploys. This increases the risk of an injury.  

The recall covers the following models: 

  • 2008 – 2011 Nissan Armada
  • 2008 – 2011 Nissan Frontier
  • 2008 – 2011 Nissan Pathfinder
  • 2008 – 2009 Nissan Quest
  • 2008 – 2011 Nissan Titan
  • 2008 – 2011 Nissan Xterra        

Recall summary

The driver’s side airbag is secured by a cover with the manufacturer’s emblem affixed on top. 

On the affected vehicles, the adhesive holding the emblem in place may be weaker than standard due to a supplier error. This can result in the emblem becoming loose when the driver airbag deploys upon impact.   

The supplier behind the recall is the Swedish-American manufacturer Autoliv which was recently at the center of a sweeping recall for unsecured child seats, as reported.

Recall risks

The loosened emblem could act as a projectile and hit the driver or the passengers upon deployment of the airbag. This presents an increased risk of injury.   

Other Nissan recalls

In August 2022, there was a Nissan Pathfinder recall due to a problem with the rearview camera. The recall also included other vehicles, as reported.

In November 2022, Nissan recalled 203,223 pickup trucks including the 2020–2023 Titan and 2020–2023 Frontier due to the risk of a rollaway, as reported.

In December 2022, Nissan recalled 125,215 2017 Nissan Rogue SUVs over a corrosion problem with the wiring system, which increases the risk of fire.

The repair

Nissan is currently working on the remedy for the issue. 

Owners of affected vehicles will be notified by April 10, 2023.  All repairs will be free of charge.

Nissan recalls more Rogue SUVs over wiring corrosion, fire risk

Franklin, TN – December 7, 2022 – Nissan (OTCMKTS:NSANY) is recalling 125,215 2017 Nissan Rogue crossover SUVs because of corrosion in the wiring system, which increases the risk of fire. This is an expansion of a January 2022 recall for the same issue, which at the time only affected the 2014-2016 model years.

Recall summary

The dash side harness is a set of wires and connectors located under the dashboard. In the affected vehicles, water and salt could collect in the area under the driver’s feet, then make their way up into the wiring harness. As a result, the wire connectors could become corroded and damaged.

The component involved in this recall is the dash side harness with multiple part numbers, including 24017-6MA0A, 24017-6MA0B, and 24017-6MA1A.  

Recall risks

Corroded electrical connectors can cause various features to malfunction, and in rare cases could cause a fire, endangering the occupants and upping the chance of a crash.  

Warning signs

Users may notice that the driver’s side power window or power seat has stopped working. They may also observe the AWD warning light come turn on or notice heat damage on the connector. Finally, the vehicle’s battery may run out.

Background of the recall

After the January 2022 recall, in which 688,946 2014-2016 Rogue SUVs were recalled over the same issue with the wiring harness, Nissan received a report from Transport Canada alleging the same problem in the 2017 model year. Between February and August 2022, Nissan conducted an investigation into the 2017 Nissan Rogue, culminating in the current recall.

The automaker received a total of nine complaints connected to Nissan harness connector corrosion, with no injuries or fires reported.    

Other Nissan recalls

Nissan issued a recall for 27,344 vehicles in November 2022, among them the 2021 and 2022 Rogue, over the rearview camera failing to display an image when Reverse gear is engaged.

An earlier recall in January 2022 involved 24,793 2021 Rogues and centered around defective fuel pumps that could cause the vehicle to stall while in motion.

The repair

Dealers will replace damaged connectors found after conducting an inspection on affected vehicles. Lithium grease will also be applied to the connectors to prevent corrosion resulting from liquid damage. 

Owners of affected vehicles will be notified on or around January 20, 2023.
