The steering knuckle or rear axle housing can deform

Nissan North America is recalling 14,276 model year 2020 Nissan Muranos, INFINITI QX60s, and model year 2021 Nissan GT-Rs and INFINITI QX50s, & Q50s.

The front steering knuckle or rear axle housing may have insufficient strength due to improper heat-treatment.

The steering knuckle or rear axle could deform upon impact, such as from hitting a curb, resulting in a loss of steering control, or possible wheel separation. Both of these conditions can increase the risk of a crash.

What to do

Dealers will inspect and replace the front steering knuckle and rear axle housing -- as necessary -- free of charge.

Owner notification letters are expected to be mailed July 23, 2021.

Nissan owners may contact customer service at (800) 867-7669. INFINITI owners may contact customer service at (800) 662-6200.
