On certain vehicles, when driving at low speeds or idling on a downward grade, with ¼ tank or less of fuel, an error in the fuel pump control program may restrict fuel supply to the engine, which could cause the engine to stall. Engine stalling would result in lost vehicle propulsion which, in conjunction with traffic and road conditions, and the driver's reactions, could increase the risk of a crash causing property damage and/or personal injury. Correction: Dealers will reprogram the Engine Control Module.
On certain vehicles, the brake pedal pivot pin end was not properly manufactured. As a result, the pin may not remain in place, causing the brake pedal to partially disengage from the brake pedal bracket. If this occurs, the driver will experience unusual and noticeable looseness in the pedal and a reduction in braking force. A reduction in braking force may lead to increased stopping distances and the risk of a crash causing property damage, personal injury or death. Correction: Owners of all potentially affected vehicles will be contacted and their brake pedal assembly will be inspected and replaced if necessary.
Certain vehicles may have been assembled with faulty seat track assemblies. Specifically, the driver's inboard, and the passenger's outboard seat tracks, may have undersized slots in two locations. This may result in the manual seat pawl not fully engaging in those slots. Should the vehicle be involved in a crash, occupants of front seats with affected seat tracks would be exposed to an increased risk of personal injury or death. Correction: Dealers will inspect and, if necessary, replace the entire seat assembly.
On certain vehicles, the transverse link attachment to the front suspension may not have received adequate tightening torque during vehicle assembly process. A loose transverse link bolt may cause a rattling noise and a vibration. If the bolt comes off completely, the driver may experience difficulty maintaining vehicle control. This could result in a vehicle crash causing injury or death. Correction: Dealers will replace attachment bolts and torque new fasteners to specified value.
On certain vehicles, the 3rd-row curtain side-impact airbag on the driver's side may have been installed slightly out of position during vehicle assembly. This could cause the airbag to inflate in a manner different than designed or not inflate at all. The most likely result of this mis-installation is a delayed deployment. Nissan testing has determined that the delay would be about 20 msc compared with the design intent, and the bag will still be inflated before a 3rd-row occupant might interact with it in a side impact crash. Testing also determined that in the event of a non-deployment, the vehicle still exceeds all safety requirements in the third row seats. Correction: Dealers will inspect and, if required, reposition the 3rd-row curtain side-impact airbag. This action is deemed a voluntary service campaign and is not being conducted under the Motor Vehicel Safety Act.
On certain vehicles, a third row seat bracket striker may become detached from its mounting bracket due to a broken weld at the point of attachment. Striker separation may increase the risk of injury to seat occupants in certain types of collisions. Correction: The third row seat striker brackets will be replaced.
On certain vehicles, the seat adjustment mechanism contains exposed moving metal components located at the rear inside edge of the second row seat. An operators finger may be pinched in the mechanism during seat adjustment. Correction: Dealers will install a plastic reinforcement to the backside of the existing seat back cover carpeting.
On certain vehicles equipped with a power sliding door(s), at an ambient temperature below approximately 4 degrees Celsius, the actuator for the power sliding door(s) may bind. In order to open, close or reverse a power sliding door, the shift selector lever must be in PARK. If the actuator is experiencing binding and the driver shifts the vehicle out of PARK while a power sliding door is still closing, the door latches may not engage. This can result in the door coming open unexpectedly upon rapid acceleration. Correction: Dealer will replace the actuator for the power sliding door(s).
On vehicles equipped with the automatic airbag suppression feature option, the front passenger seat is equipped with a seat cushion bladder and sensors used for occupant detection. When a certain child dummy is placed in the required positions for US Government tests, automatic suppression may not occur. Correction: Dealers will inspect the front passenger seat cushion/sensor assembly. If the seat cushion/sensor is found to be operating improperly, the seat will be removed and recalibrated. Nissan in the United States is conducting this safety recall campaign to correct an out of compliance condition with US regulations. While there are approximately 1,524 vehicles in Canada affected by this condition, Canadian regulations in this area differ from those in the United States and thus Canadian vehicles are not out of compliance. However, in the interest of customer satisfaction, Nissan Canada Inc., will be conducting a Voluntary Customer Satisfaction Initiative to have owners of affected Canadian vehicles return to their dealers for inspection and recalibration if required.
Certain vehicles do not comply with the requirements of CMVSS 209 - Seat Belt Assemblies. The seat belt assemblies may not withstand the force requirements of the standard. In a crash, if the belt buckle fails, there is an increased risk of injury to the occupant. Correction: Belt buckle assemblies will be inspected and replaced if necessary.
On certain vehicles, the retaining bolts for the steering rack mounting brackets may not have been torqued to the proper specification. This could eventually cause the steering rack to become loose to the point where difficulty in steering the vehicle may be experienced. Correction: Dealers will check steering rack mounting bolt torque and if the torque is insufficient, new bolts will be installed.
On certain vehicles, the seat belt assemblies may not withstand the force requirements of the standard. In a crash, if the belt buckle fails, there is an increased risk of injury to the occupant. Correction: Dealer will replace the seat belt buckle assembly.
