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
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.
As in similar recalls, vehicle rollaway increases the risk of injury from a resulting crash.
If your truck is affected by this recall, Nissan advises that you use the parking brake every time you park.

Among other Nissan Titan recalls, one from September 2021, caused by faulty signal bulbs, is the most recent.
In January 2022, a large number of Nissan Rogue SUVs were recalled over faulty electrical wiring, which could result in a vehicle fire.

In the meantime, interim notifications will be sent to owners on July 20, 2022, urging drivers to use the parking brake whenever they park their vehicles.
