The power steering assist may become disabled

Nissan North America is recalling 11,824 model year 2021 Versa and Kicks.

An intermittent electrical connection in the electric power steering (EPS) torque sensor can disable the power steering assist.

Loss of power steering assist can increase the steering effort required, especially at low speeds, and increase the risk of a crash.

What to do

Dealers will inspect the steering column torque sensor lot code and replace the steering column assembly -- if necessary -- free of charge.

These vehicles were previously recalled, but did not receive a steering column replacement.

Notification letters are expected to be mailed to owners September 8, 2023.

Owners may contact Nissan's customer service at 1-800-867-7669.
