Franklin, TN – September 2, 2021 – Nissan (OTCMKTS:NSANY) has issued a recall for 13,215 units of the 2021 Nissan Rogue Sport over a concern that the trunk lid – called liftgate in auto-speak – may separate from the vehicle in the event of a rear-end crash.
The affected part is the liftgate hinge shaft with part number 904006MA0A.
A supplier manufacturing error has resulted in the reduced strength of the liftgate shaft. The liftgate shaft is the part with which the liftgate is hinged onto the vehicle.
In the event of a rear-end crash, the liftgate may separate from the vehicle and increase the risk of injury for the occupants of the car and people around them. To read about the dangers of road debris, please refer to this article about Land Rover’s fly-away spoilers.

Back in May, the 2021 Rogue compact SUVs were part of another Nissan recall for a brake fluid leak.
Dealers will replace the left and right liftgate hinges on the affected vehicles. Owners affected by the recall will be notified by September 7, 2021.
