Franklin, TN – October 22, 2022 – Nissan (OTCMKTS:NSANY) has issued a recall for 8,391 SUVs over an issue with the seat belts, which could fail to extract or retract properly. This could result in passengers not using the belts, increasing the risk of injury in a crash.
The recall affects the following vehicles:
- 2021 Nissan Rogue
- 2022 Nissan Rogue
Seat belts use a retractor that keeps the belt taut, removing any slack and safely securing the occupant in the seat. In the affected vehicles, the seat belts on the left and right rear seats may not pull out or retract properly during normal use. This can prevent the seat belts from loosening again as designed.
The primary risk is that passengers will not use the seat belts. According to Nissan, “There may be difficulty in pulling the seat belt out of the retractor, thus preventing its usage.” Failure to use a seat belt could lead to injury in an accident.
Passengers will observe that the seat belts will still have a slack or loose portion, or that the belts will retract more slowly than intended.
Other Nissan Rogue recalls
In November 2021, Nissan issued a recall for 5,905 Rogue Hybrid SUVs for the 2017 – 2019 model years. This was over a problem with the wiring harness that could cause the vehicle to lose power and stall during operation.
In January 2022, Nissan recalled 688,946 Rogue SUVs spanning the 2014 to 2016 model years, also over a problem with the wiring harness; this defect could lead to an increased risk of fire.
Dealers will inspect the left- and right-hand passenger seat belts and replace them as needed. The remedy will be performed free of charge for both parts and labor.
Affected owners will be notified on or around October 27, 2022.
