Road salt may corrode the front coil springs, possibly resulting in the coil springs fracturing.
If a front coil spring fractures, it may contact the tire, possibly puncturing it, increasing the risk of a crash.
What to do
Nissan will notify owners, and dealers will replace both front coil springs, free of charge.
The recall is expected to begin November 27, 2017.
Owners may contact Nissan customer service at 1-800-647-7261.
