Regardless of the reliability of the product, when it is mass produced, there is a chance that a defective product will be sold to the public. Unfortunately, with regards to cars, SUVs, and trucks, that can lead to injury or even death. It is important that car owners pay attention to recalls and take their vehicle to get fixed in the event of one.
Over the past few years, Nissan has been forced to recall a number of different models including the Altima, Rogue, Maxima, and Murano. Check the recall list below to see if you need to take your car in to have a defective part fixed.
- In 2016, the Nissan Altima (‘13-’15), Nissan Rogue (‘15-’16), and Nissan Maxima (‘16) were recalled for the incorrect installation of the Occupant Classification System (OCS) Electronic Control System in the front passenger seats. The incorrect installations resulted in the misclassification of the occupant of the front passenger seat. This issue caused the front airbag to deploy incorrectly, increasing the risk of injury.
- In January of 2017, over 340,000 Nissan Altimas from 2015-2017 were recalled due to an issue with the rear passenger side door. The issue stemmed from a wire that was not properly connected with the power window switch. This caused the door to open when the switch was used. The problem was solved by Nissan by either replacing the part entirely or re-routing the cables.
- In March 2017, around 56,000 2013 and 2014 Nissan Murano vehicles were recalled due to an issue with a leaking power steering hose. The leaking power steering hose was a result of a poorly secured power steering clamps which would detach, leak fluid on the engine, and then possibly leading to a fire.
