Franklin, TN – October 18, 2021 – Nissan (OTCMKTS: NSANY) is recalling 10,082 2022 Nissan Pathfinder SUVs, whose headrests on third-row seats may detach during a crash, increasing the risk of an injury.
Vehicles that are part of this Nissan recall notice have headrests on their third-row seats that may have not been assembled properly. This happened because their components were misaligned and incorrectly welded during the production process. As a result, the headrest may detach during a crash.
The components in question are central and outside headrests on the third-row seats, with multiple part numbers including 86410 6TA0A and 86480 6TA2C.
A loose headrest will not provide sufficient support to the passenger’s head during a rear-end collision, which increases the risk of an injury.
Owners may notice the headrest moving in an “abnormal” way, which happens because of the excessive play within it.
Other Nissan Pathfinder recalls
Despite being in production for a few months only, the new Nissan Pathfinder is already subject to at least one more recall. It deals with second-row seats, whose backsides may detach from the restraint points during a crash.
To fix the issue, Nissan authorized dealers will replace all three headrests on third-row seats. Notifications about the repair will be sent to vehicle owners around November 19, 2021.
