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.

The repair

Dealers will inspect the clearance on the driver’s seat rail and replace the seat frame if needed. The repair will be performed free of charge.
