Nissan recalls Frontier and Titan pickups for second time over rollaway risk

Franklin, TN – November 12, 2022 – Nissan (OTCMKTS:NSANY) is recalling 203,223 pickup trucks because of a problem with the Park mode on the automatic transmissions. This could lead to the vehicle rolling away, increasing the risk of a crash. 

This recall expands on an earlier recall done in June of this year for the same issue and covers the following models: 

  • 2020 – 2023 Nissan Titan
  • 2020 – 2023 Nissan Frontier 

Recall summary

In the subject vehicles, there is a problem with the parking pawl — a metal pin that locks the transmission in place when Park mode is engaged. The parking pawl prevents the wheels from moving.

In the affected vehicles, the parking pawl may not lock into place as expected. As a result, the vehicle could move even when it appears to be in Park.

“Resistance” between two parts of the transmission is to blame for the defect, according to the manufacturer.

Recall risks

A rolling vehicle could cause a crash, injury or damage to property.

Background of the recall

This recall expands upon another in June 2022 for a similar issue; the earlier recall included only the 2020 – 2022 models.

Safety tips

Until the vehicle is repaired, Nissan advises owners to use the parking brake every time they park to ensure that the vehicle does not roll.

Other Nissan recalls

In addition to the June 2022 Nissan Frontier and Nissan Titan recalls mentioned above, the 2022 Frontier and Titan pickups were among the vehicles Nissan recalled in August 2022 due to a problem with the rearview camera. The dashboard display could fail to show the rearview image when the Reverse gear was engaged.

The repair

To remedy this Nissan rollaway issues, dealers will reprogram the computers that are responsible for the cars’ engine and transmission free of charge. It is not clear how these software updates will address the “resistance” issue described above.

Affected owners should have been notified on November 1, 2022.

Nissan recalls trucks and SUVs whose rearview cameras may freeze up 

Franklin, TN – November 3, 2022 – Nissan (OTCMKTS:NSANY) is recalling 27,344 trucks and SUVs whose rearview cameras may fail to show an image. This increases the risk of a crash while backing up and a consequent injury.

The following models are affected by this recall:

  • 2022 Nissan Frontier
  • 2022 Nissan Titan 
  • 2022 Nissan Titan XD
  • 2021 – 2022 Nissan Rogue

Recall summary

All listed vehicles are fitted with a rearview camera, as mandated by current road regulations. But on affected cars, due to a software error, the display on the central console may fail to show an image from this camera.

The component causing this recall is the In-Vehicle Infotainment (IVI) system, with different part numbers including 25915 9FY1D and 2591A 6RR1A. 

Recall risks

If unable to see what’s behind the vehicle when backing up, the driver may crash into other vehicles or pedestrians, increasing the risk of an injury. 

Other Nissan recalls

Among previous Nissan Rogue recalls, the one caused by jammed seat belts, which happened in October 2022, is the latest. 

In addition, there were several Nissan Titan recalls during the past few months. One that happened in July 2022 was caused by defective transmissions that may slip out of Park

Th repair

The manufacturer will fix the issue by releasing a software update, which will be done “over-the-air”. This means owners won’t have to take their cars to their dealers. And, as always, the repair will be free of charge.

Nissan recalls SUVs over faulty seat belts

Franklin, TN – October 22, 2022 – Nissan (OTCMKTS:NSANY) has issued a recall for 8,391 SUVs over an issue with the seat belts, which could fail to extract or retract properly. This could result in passengers not using the belts, increasing the risk of injury in a crash. 

The recall affects the following vehicles:

  • 2021 Nissan Rogue
  • 2022 Nissan Rogue

Recall summary

Seat belts use a retractor that keeps the belt taut, removing any slack and safely securing the occupant in the seat. In the affected vehicles, the seat belts on the left and right rear seats may not pull out or retract properly during normal use. This can prevent the seat belts from loosening again as designed.    

Recall risks

The primary risk is that passengers will not use the seat belts. According to Nissan, “There may be difficulty in pulling the seat belt out of the retractor, thus preventing its usage.” Failure to use a seat belt could lead to injury in an accident.

Warning signs

Passengers will observe that the seat belts will still have a slack or loose portion, or that the belts will retract more slowly than intended.

Other Nissan Rogue recalls

In November 2021, Nissan issued a recall for 5,905 Rogue Hybrid SUVs for the 2017 – 2019 model years. This was over a problem with the wiring harness that could cause the vehicle to lose power and stall during operation.

In January 2022, Nissan recalled 688,946 Rogue SUVs spanning the 2014 to 2016 model years, also over a problem with the wiring harness; this defect could lead to an increased risk of fire.

Repair

Dealers will inspect the left- and right-hand passenger seat belts and replace them as needed. The remedy will be performed free of charge for both parts and labor.

Affected owners will be notified on or around October 27, 2022.

Is your vehicle part of this recall?

Nissan recalls vehicles over power steering failure

Franklin, TN – September 24, 2022 – Nissan (OTCMKTS:NSANY) has issued a recall for 20,040 vehicles over a loss of power steering assist. The issue ups the risk of a crash.  

The recall covers the following SUVs and subcompact cars: 

  • 2021 Nissan Kicks
  • 2021 Nissan Versa

Recall summary

The power steering feature makes it easier for drivers to turn or maneuver a vehicle. A sensor measures the force the driver applies to the steering wheel during turns, then tells the control unit how much assistance to provide.

In the affected vehicles, an unreliable electrical connection in the sensor could lead to the power steering being disabled

The component involved in this recall is the upper steering column, with part number 48810-5EE0A.  

Recall risks

When power steering fails, the driver must use more effort to steer. For more information, read about a similar recall initiated by General Motors.

Other Nissan recalls

The current recall is one of two 2021 Nissan Versa recalls so far. The model was among 30,799 vehicles recalled in September 2021 over a problem with the front turn signal bulbs. The recall also included the 2021 Kicks SUVs, as reported.

In August 2022, Nissan recalled 10,477 vehicles, including the 2021 Pathfinder and 2021 and 2022 Rogue, over the rearview camera’s failure to display images when reverse gear is selected, also as reported.

Repair

Dealers will inspect the steering sensor assembly and replace it as needed. All repair work will be done free of charge. 

Affected owners will be notified on or around November 9, 2022.

Nissan recalls SUVs over loss of power brake assist

Franklin, TN – August 28, 2022 – Subaru (OTCMKTS:NSANY) is issuing a recall for 5,904 SUVs because their brake boosters may not work properly, increasing the risk of an accident.

The recall includes the following vehicles:

  • 2017 Rogue Hybrid
  • 2018 Rogue Hybrid
  • 2019 Rogue Hybrid

Recall summary

The hydraulic brake booster serves to boost the brakes’ stopping power, helping the vehicle to stop faster in an emergency situation. This is done through the force of a vacuum pump, which sucks all the air out of the brake booster to make it more efficient. 

In the affected vehicles, the effectiveness of the motor used by the brake booster may be reduced due to friction from using the brakes repeatedly or high temperatures generated by the engine. This situation can cause the “loss of power brake assist.”

The component involved in this recall is the hydraulic brake booster assembly with part number 47210 4BC8A. 

Recall risks

The worn out booster would require more effort from the driver to press the brake pedal. This could lead to the vehicle needing a longer distance to slow down or stop, potentially increasing the risk of a crash. 

Warning signs

Drivers will notice the red brake system warning indicator lighting up on the dashboard, accompanied by a buzzing sound. 

Other Nissan Rogue recalls 

The 2020-2021 Nissan Rogues were part of another Nissan recall earlier this month due to a rearview camera defect, as reported.  

There was a Nissan Rogue hybrid recall in November 2021 due to a problem with the engine harness which could cause the vehicles to lose power and stall unexpectedly.

Repair

The remedy is currently under development. Affected owners will receive letters with more information on or around September 22, 2022. 

All repairs will be free of charge and Nissan will reimburse the owners who already paid to have their vehicles repaired due to this issue.

Nissan recalls trucks that may roll away

Franklin TN – July 5, 2022 – Nissan (OTCMKTS:NSANY) is recalling 180,176 trucks whose transmissions may slip out of Park and roll away, increasing the risk of crashing into pedestrians or other vehicles. This recall includes the following vehicles: 

  • 2020 – 2022 Nissan Frontier 
  • 2020 – 2022 Nissan Titan

Recall summary  

When the driver selects the Park gear, a mechanism inside the transmission locks up and stops the vehicle from moving. In affected trucks, the Park gear mechanism might not engage as intended due to a supplier error during manufacturing.

This may cause the vehicle to roll away.

The component causing this recall is the automatic transmission, with part number 31311 X280A.

Recall risks

As in similar recalls, vehicle rollaway increases the risk of injury from a resulting crash.

Safety tips

If your truck is affected by this recall, Nissan advises that you use the parking brake every time you park.

Nissan recalls SUVs with fly-open hoods

Franklin, TN – July 2, 2022 – Nissan (OTCMKTS:NSANY) is recalling 322,671 2013–2016 Nissan Pathfinder SUVs whose hoods may fly open while driving. This obstructs the driver’s field of view, increasing the risk of a crash and injury.

This recall follows on the heels of a U.S. government investigation.

Recall summary

The hood on a vehicle is held shut by two mechanisms: the primary latch, which is released when the driver pulls the lever inside the cabin, and the secondary (safety) latch, which is manually released under the front edge of the hood. 

On vehicles affected by this Nissan Pathfinder recall, dust and dirt from the road may create buildup inside the secondary locking mechanism. If that happens, the mechanism may jam in an open position. While the hood will remain securely closed, nothing will stop it from flying open if the driver accidentally pulls the primary latch release lever while driving

Background of the recall

These hood latch issues were investigated by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) in December 2021, as reported.

The 2014-2016 Pathfinder Hybrids are also subject to the same investigation, which is still ongoing.

Recall risks

In addition to significantly limiting visibility, a suddenly opening hood may startle the driver. This could lead to a crash, increasing the risk of an injury. 

Other Nissan recalls

A Nissan recall from October 2021 addressed software-related stalling and included Murano, Pathfinder and Infiniti QX60 vehicles.

In January 2022, Nissan recalled a large number of Rogue SUVs over a risk of fire caused by wiring issues, as reported.

The repair

At this time, the manufacturer is still working on a solution. As a first step, 40,000 owners will be asked to bring their SUVs to a dealer that will inspect the latch assembly and replace it if necessary. Nissan will collect the faulty components for examination. Owners of these vehicles will receive notifications on or after June 30, 2022.

The remaining owners will receive instructions on how to inspect the secondary latch. If a problem is found, owners can visit a dealer for inspection and replacement. Notifications about this temporary solution will be sent by August 3, 2022. 

Lastly, all owners of affected vehicles will be notified once the final remedy is ready.

Nissan recalls over 500,000 Rogue SUVs over fire risk

Franklin, TN – January 30, 2022 –  Nissan (OTCMKTS:NSANY) is recalling 688,946 SUVs that may catch fire because of an electrical issue, increasing the risk of a crash and injury. The recall affects 2014 – 2016 Nissan Rogue SUVs. 

Recall summary  

All recalled vehicles listed here have a wiring harness – which is a bundle of wires with electrical connectors – under their floor carpets on the driver side. 

One of the connectors may not be sealed properly, allowing water and moisture to get in contact with bare wiring. This causes the connectors to corrode. The corrosion, in turn, increases the chance of an electrical short and fire and may negatively affect the operation of the driver-side window and seat. The issue may also result in “battery drainage.”

The component in question is the “Secondary Dash Side Harness” with multiple part numbers including 24014-4BA0A and 24014-5HK1E. 

Recall risks

Malfunctioning seats and windows or the smoke within the vehicle may distract the driver. 

A fire greatly increases the risk of injury or even death for the occupants of the car, as well as potentially other motorists. For tips on what to do if there is a fire, please visit the following page.  

Warning signs 

In addition to malfunctioning driver-side window and door, the driver may also notice the AWD sign come on. If there is an electrical short or a fire, the driver or passengers may notice smoke and a burning smell inside the vehicle. 

Other Nissan Rogue recalls 

Apart from these Nissan Rogue electrical issues, there were no other recent recalls that were affecting vehicles from this list.  However, the 2021 Nissan Rogue was recalled five times last year. The two recent recalls were caused by unsecured child seats in September and an overheating fuel pump which may cause the car to stall in December, as reported.

The repair

At this time, Nissan has not yet come up with a solution to the problem, although it is expected to be “available in spring 2022”.  All repairs will be done free of charge and owners who paid for theirs out-of-pocket will be reimbursed.

Nissan recalls Rogue SUVs that may stall

Franklin, TN – January 1, 2022 – Nissan (OTCMKTS:NSANY) is recalling 24,793 2021 Nissan Rogue SUVs whose fuel pumps may fail. This may cause the vehicle to stall, increasing the risk of a crash and injury. 

Recall summary  

A fuel pump is an electrical component inside the fuel tank that transfers the gasoline towards the engine.  As a result of incorrect assembly by a supplier, the pump may overheat and stop working. When that happens, the engine may stall and will not restart as if the car were out of gasoline.

The component in question is the Fuel Pump Assembly, with part number 17040 6RE0A for two-wheel drive (2WD) vehicles and 17040 6RE1A for four-wheel drive (4WD) vehicles.
