Nissan North America is recalling 4,883 model year 2016-2017 Nissan Rogues.
The recliner joints on the lower seat frame for the rear seats may have improper welds.
The recalled vehicles, therefore, fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards (FMVSS) number 207, "Seating Systems," and 210, "Seat Belt Assembly Anchorages."
The insufficient welds can increase the risk of injury to the seats' occupants in the event of a crash.
What to do
Nissan will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the seat frames and replace any defective lower seat frames, free of charge.
The recall is expected to begin December 4, 2017.
Owners may contact Nissan customer service at 1-800-647-7261.
