Nissan recalls SUVs over faulty seat belts

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

Recall summary

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.    

Recall risks

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.

Warning signs

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.

Repair

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.

Nissan recalls SUVs over loss of power brake assist

Franklin, TN – August 28, 2022 – Subaru (OTCMKTS:NSANY) is issuing a recall for 5,904 SUVs because their brake boosters may not work properly, increasing the risk of an accident.

The recall includes the following vehicles:

  • 2017 Rogue Hybrid
  • 2018 Rogue Hybrid
  • 2019 Rogue Hybrid

Recall summary

The hydraulic brake booster serves to boost the brakes’ stopping power, helping the vehicle to stop faster in an emergency situation. This is done through the force of a vacuum pump, which sucks all the air out of the brake booster to make it more efficient. 

In the affected vehicles, the effectiveness of the motor used by the brake booster may be reduced due to friction from using the brakes repeatedly or high temperatures generated by the engine. This situation can cause the “loss of power brake assist.”

The component involved in this recall is the hydraulic brake booster assembly with part number 47210 4BC8A. 

Recall risks

The worn out booster would require more effort from the driver to press the brake pedal. This could lead to the vehicle needing a longer distance to slow down or stop, potentially increasing the risk of a crash. 

Warning signs

Drivers will notice the red brake system warning indicator lighting up on the dashboard, accompanied by a buzzing sound. 

Other Nissan Rogue recalls 

The 2020-2021 Nissan Rogues were part of another Nissan recall earlier this month due to a rearview camera defect, as reported.  

There was a Nissan Rogue hybrid recall in November 2021 due to a problem with the engine harness which could cause the vehicles to lose power and stall unexpectedly.

Repair

The remedy is currently under development. Affected owners will receive letters with more information on or around September 22, 2022. 

All repairs will be free of charge and Nissan will reimburse the owners who already paid to have their vehicles repaired due to this issue.

Nissan recalls SUVs, pickups over rearview camera defect

Franklin, TN – August 7, 2022 – Nissan (OTCMKTS:NSANY) is recalling 10,477 rental SUVs and pickup trucks over an issue with the rearview camera. The dashboard monitor may not display images from the rearview camera when the vehicle is reversing, increasing the risk of a crash. 

The recall covers the following models: 

  • 2022 Nissan Frontier 
  • 2021 Nissan Pathfinder 
  • 2022 Nissan Titan
  • 2021 – 2022 Nissan Rogue

Recall summary

These vehicles give customers the option of a radio service subscription as part of the rental.  Even if the customer declines the service, the In-Vehicle Infotainment (IVI) system will continue to search for radio channels, causing the system to reboot after a certain time. While the system is rebooting, the rearview camera will be unavailable.

The component involved in this recall is the IVI software program version, with multiple part numbers including 4612, 4618, 5319, 4901 and 4617. 

Recall risks

Nissan recalls trucks that may roll away

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

Recall summary  

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.

Recall risks

As in similar recalls, vehicle rollaway increases the risk of injury from a resulting crash.

Safety tips

If your truck is affected by this recall, Nissan advises that you use the parking brake every time you park.

Nissan recalls over 500,000 Rogue SUVs over fire risk

Franklin, TN – January 30, 2022 –  Nissan (OTCMKTS:NSANY) is recalling 688,946 SUVs that may catch fire because of an electrical issue, increasing the risk of a crash and injury. The recall affects 2014 – 2016 Nissan Rogue SUVs. 

Recall summary  

All recalled vehicles listed here have a wiring harness – which is a bundle of wires with electrical connectors – under their floor carpets on the driver side. 

One of the connectors may not be sealed properly, allowing water and moisture to get in contact with bare wiring. This causes the connectors to corrode. The corrosion, in turn, increases the chance of an electrical short and fire and may negatively affect the operation of the driver-side window and seat. The issue may also result in “battery drainage.”

The component in question is the “Secondary Dash Side Harness” with multiple part numbers including 24014-4BA0A and 24014-5HK1E. 

Recall risks

Malfunctioning seats and windows or the smoke within the vehicle may distract the driver. 

A fire greatly increases the risk of injury or even death for the occupants of the car, as well as potentially other motorists. For tips on what to do if there is a fire, please visit the following page.  

Warning signs 

In addition to malfunctioning driver-side window and door, the driver may also notice the AWD sign come on. If there is an electrical short or a fire, the driver or passengers may notice smoke and a burning smell inside the vehicle. 

Other Nissan Rogue recalls 

Apart from these Nissan Rogue electrical issues, there were no other recent recalls that were affecting vehicles from this list.  However, the 2021 Nissan Rogue was recalled five times last year. The two recent recalls were caused by unsecured child seats in September and an overheating fuel pump which may cause the car to stall in December, as reported.

The repair

At this time, Nissan has not yet come up with a solution to the problem, although it is expected to be “available in spring 2022”.  All repairs will be done free of charge and owners who paid for theirs out-of-pocket will be reimbursed.

Nissan recalls hybrids with software issue causing stalls

Franklin, TN – October 24, 2021 – Nissan  (OTCMKTS:NSANY) has recalled 7,634 hybrid electric vehicles with a software issue that may stall the car. The recall includes:

  • 2014 – 2017 Infiniti QX60 Hybrid
  • 2015 – 2016 Nissan Murano Hybrid
  • 2014 – 2015 Nissan Pathfinder Hybrid

The affected component is the Hybrid Power Control Unit (HPCM) Module with multiple part numbers, including  237A13JV9B and 237A13JV9C.

Recall summary  

A hybrid powertrain transfers “power to the driving wheels” of a hybrid car. The recall stems from an issue with the HPCM, a small computer that controls the car’s hybrid powertrain while monitoring other parts of the car. If the HPCM detects damage to a certain bearing, it may determine that the car is overheating and cut off the power, causing the car to stall.

Recall risks

Stalls pose a risk to drivers on the road, who may get hit by faster-moving traffic. Read more about stall-related safety issues in this article about a Chrysler recall.

The repair

Nissan and Infiniti dealers will reprogram the HPCM for free. Nissan will send owners notification letters with further instructions starting on December 3.

Recent Nissan recalls

Earlier this month, Nissan recalled over 10,000 Pathfinders with potentially defective headrests, and 5,895 more Pathfinders whose seats could detach during a crash. More stall-prone Infinitis were recalled this past spring due to a separate control module software issue.

Nissan recalls vehicles with loose headrests

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.  

Recall summary  

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. 

Recall risks

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.  

Warning signs

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. 

The repair

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.

Franklin, TN  – October 17, 2021 – Nissan (OTCMKTS: NSANY) is recalling 5,895 2022 Nissan Pathfinder SUVs, whose second-row seats may collapse in a crash, which increases the risk of an injury. 

Recall summary  

This Nissan recall notice includes vehicles whose second-row seats were not welded properly. In the event of a crash, the backside of the seat may detach from its restraint points

The component in question is the left and right seat frame with multiple part numbers including 88050 6TD4A and 88000 6TF8C. 

Recall risks

Seats with backsides that are not fully secured in place may fail to adequately restrain the passengers during a crash. This increases the risk of an injury.  

Warning signs

Broken welds may produce a noticeable rattle in the seat frame.

Nissan recalls Rogue crossovers over unsecured child car seats

Franklin, TN – September 13, 2021 – Nissan (OTCMKTS:NSANY) has recalled 47,098 compact SUVs with faulty back seat tether wires, which help anchor children’s car seats. The wires may fail to hold the seat during a crash or a sudden stop, increasing the risk of injury for the child in the seat.

The recall includes 2021 Nissan Rogue SUVs and concerns seat backs with multiple part numbers, including 88650 6RC1A/B and 88650 6RD1A/B.

Recall summary  

There are two ways to secure a child seat: with seat belts or with the so-called lower anchors and tethers for children (LATCH) system. 

The recalled 2021 Nissan Rogues may have some loose car seat anchor points, referred to as “upper tether wires,” that were not welded correctly at the factory. These anchor points are used in car seats with a top tether strap, and may not hold the seat in the event of a crash.

Risks

Research by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has shown that car seats reduce fatalities by 71% for children under one year old, and by 54% for toddlers between one and four years old. In 2017 alone, car seats saved an estimated 312 lives among children under the age of five. 

If car seats are not properly secured to the car, they will not offer this level of protection. A weak anchor point might fail to hold the car seat during a crash or a sudden stop, increasing the risk of injury to the child sitting in it.

Other Nissan recalls

Over 13,000 2021 Nissan Rogues were recalled earlier this year out of concern that their trunk lids  – called liftgates in auto speak – were to separate in the event of a crash, as reported. In May, the same model year was recalled because of a potential brake fluid leak, also as reported.

Repair

Dealers will replace the seat back if necessary.  For further information about when and how to find out about the repairs, see this copy of Nissan’s owner notification letter.

Nissan recalls more than 30,000 vehicles with faulty signal bulbs

Franklin, TN – September 6, 2021 – Nissan (OTCMKTS:NSANY) is recalling 30,799 cars with defective front turn signal bulbs that may fail to illuminate and show that the car is turning, increasing the risk of injury.

This recall includes the following pickup trucks and subcompact cars: 

  • 2020 Nissan Titan
  • 2021 Nissan Titan
  • 2020 Nissan Titan XD
  • 2021 Nissan Titan XD
  • 2020 Nissan Versa 
  • 2021 Nissan Versa

Recall summary  

Due to a supplier error,  the internal wiring in the affected bulbs was done incorrectly and may cause the glass surface to crack during installation. This can render both the left- and the right-turn bulb inoperable and result in the malfunction of turn signals.

The bulbs are a part of a faulty lot made by a U.S office of a French supplier Valeo Sylvania.  They have multiple part numbers, including 260605EE0A and 260105EE0A.

Risks

If the front turn signal is not working, other motorists and pedestrians will not be aware of drivers’ intentions. This increases the risk of a crash or injury.

Warning signs

The “turn signal indicator light” on the vehicle dashboard will flash faster. An audible alert will also be issued promptly to let the driver know that there is an issue. 

Other Nissan recalls

Both 2020 Nissan Titan and 2020 Titan XD vehicles were recalled at the end of 2020 because of the risk of an engine fire caused by faulty electrical wiring. In addition, some of these trucks were a part of a 127,000-car strong recall that was conducted to search for seven defective tires.

The repair

Dealers will replace the affected bulbs with new ones free of charge. Notifications were set to be sent to the owners on August 20.
