Nissan North America is recalling 153,047 model year 2017 Nissan NV200s, Sentras, NV3500 Vans, NV3500 Buses, NV200 Taxis, NV1500s, NV2500 Vans, Chevrolet City Expresses, model year 2017-2018 Frontiers, Versa Notes, and Versa Sedans that have a mechanical (physical) key ignition system.
Over time, the weight on the key ring and road conditions or some other jarring event may cause the ignition switch to move out of the run position to the accessory position, turning off the engine.
If the vehicle stalls, the risk of a crash can increase.
What to do
Nissan will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the production information on the ignition switch, and replace it as necessary, free of charge.
The recall is expected to begin October 19, 2018.
Owners may contact Nissan customer service at 1-800-867-7669.
