Franklin, TN – October 17, 2021 – Nissan (OTCMKTS: NSANY) is recalling 5,895 2022 Nissan Pathfinder SUVs, whose second-row seats may collapse in a crash, which increases the risk of an injury.
This Nissan recall notice includes vehicles whose second-row seats were not welded properly. In the event of a crash, the backside of the seat may detach from its restraint points.
The component in question is the left and right seat frame with multiple part numbers including 88050 6TD4A and 88000 6TF8C.
Seats with backsides that are not fully secured in place may fail to adequately restrain the passengers during a crash. This increases the risk of an injury.
Broken welds may produce a noticeable rattle in the seat frame.
Other Nissan Pathfinder recalls
Although it entered production only a few months ago, the new Nissan Pathfinder is already subject to at least two recalls. Besides the seat issue, there is also a recent problem with third-row headrests that may detach during a collision.
Nissan authorized dealers replace the seat frame assembly if the welds are broken or cracked. Notifications about the repair will be sent to vehicle owners around November 19, 2021.
