Nissan Armadas recalled

The driver or front passenger seat belt assemblies have latching issues

Nissan North America is recalling 1,554 model year 2015 Nissan Armadas manufactured April 30, 2015, to June 5, 2015.

Nissan is recalling 13,919 model year 2012-2013 Altimas manufactured from May 10, 2012, through July 26, 2012. The vehicles may have been equipped with transverse link bolts and power steering rack bolts that were not torqued to proper specification.

The affected bolts could become loose and fall out which may lead to a loss of vehicle control, increasing the risk of a vehicle crash.

Nissan will notify owners, and dealers will tighten the bolts to the proper torque specifications. The safety recall is expected to begin on, or about October 29.

Owners may contact Nissan Customer Service at 1-800-647-7261.

Suit Charges Nissan Covered Up Brake Defect Since 2004

Faulty sensor in ABS control unit endangers motorists, suit alleges

A federal class action claims Nissan has sold cars with defective delta stroke sensors, a brake mechanism, since 2004

In their suit, filed in U.S. District Court in San Francisco, Brandon and Erin Banks say that a defect in the delta stroke sensor, an electronic component that controls critical safety aspects of braking, causes drivers to lose braking ability without warning.

The plaintiffs claim that as a result of the defect, Erin Banks drove through a red light at a busy intersection with her two small children in the car.

"Despite applying the brakes in a manner reasonable anticipated to bring the vehicle to a complete stop, she frighteningly and dangerously went through the intersection," the suit alleges.

The suit seeks to represent all U.S. consumers who currently own Nissan products with the allegedly defective component and those who previously owned one, excluding those who claim to have suffered personal injuries as a result.

Nissan Armada

The Banks, who live in Placer County, Calif., say they bought a 2004 Nissan Armada in October 2006, when the truck had about 23,000 miles on the odometer. They also purchased a Nissan extended warranty that covered the vehicle for 75,000 miles.

On Feb. 24, 2011, as Erin Banks approached a red light at 40 miles per hour, she applied the brakes but the vehicle did not slow down. She pumped the brakes but still coasted through the intersection, the suit says.

The Armada was taken to Future Nissan in Roseville, Calif., and inspected. A service technician advised that the vehicle had displayed a test code which indicated a failure of the deltra stroke sensor in the ABS control unit.

The technician said he had seen the problem in a number of other vehicles, the suit charges, and said that Nissan had issued an update but that vehicles were being return for repairs even after the update had been applied.

$1,000 bill

The only way to fix the problem was to replace the sensor at a cost of more than $1,000, the technician advised, but the dealership declined to do so under warranty and referred Banks to Nissan's customer hotline, the suit stated.

After numerous phone calls, Nissan declined to pay for the replacement, allegedly stating that the warranty had expired and implying that Banks was not a "loyal" Nissan customer based on the number of non-Nissan vehicles he had owned.

Banks then spent $967 to have the sensor replaced at his expense.

The suit quotes Nissan Technical Service Bulletin NTB06-040 which describes the problem and outlines steps to remedy it.

Banks charges that he would not have purchased the Armada or the extended warranty had he known of the safety hazard allegedly posed by the faulty sensor, and charges that Nissan denied customers information that could have affected their safety and that of others on the road.

The suit seeks damages, legal fees and injunctive relief.

Nissan Settles GT-R Class Action

Suit alleged defects in supercar led to transmission failure


Nissan has agreed to replace the so-called launch control on its high-end GT-R sports coupe, bringing to an end a saga that started with one owner's truly horrifying story.

In October 2008, Autoblog reported that a GT-R owner took his car to the dealership after hearing loud noises in the rear end. The verdict? His transmission was finished, which Nissan said was the direct result of turning off the car's vehicle dynamic control, or VDC.

The owner had apparently disengaged the system several times in order to activate the Nissan's launch control, which allows the car to shoot from zero to 60 miles per hour in 3.3 seconds (versus a flat 4.0 with launch control turned off).

Nissan informed the owner he was out of luck, as GT-R's owner's manuals warn consumers to never turn off VDC unless trying to extract their car from the snow or mud. He would have to pay the repair costs himself, at a grand total of $20,000.

Much was made of launch control when the GT-R debuted in the States last year, and for good reason. Sixty miles an hour in four seconds would be more than satisfactory for most people, but the GT-R is an enthusiast's car; 3.3 seconds puts it ahead of the Tiptronic version of Porsche's 911 Turbo (which reaches 60 in 3.4 seconds) and even a good number of motorcycles.

Under the settlement, consumers are eligible to upgrade to a new-and-improved launch control (appropriately named LC2), which provides safeguards to reduce the likelihood of any more five-digit mechanic bills. Once GT-R owners upgrade, their warranties will be extended to five years or 60,000 miles, whichever comes first.

In spite of the new system's improved technology, however, consumers whose transmissions fail as a direct result of VDC being turned off will still not be covered.

If a consumer turns VDC off, then back on, and subsequently experiences a failure, the burden is on Nissan to prove that the VDC's disengagement was the cause of the problem. And it's not necessarily easy to game the system; Nissan has previously used black box data to determine whether problems were caused by the owner turning VDC off. 2009 GT-R owners will also get a service coupon worth $75.

The GT-R was launched in Japan in late 2007 and burst onto the American scene the following year. While Nissan has had some hits with enthusiasts before including its 350Z coupe the GT-R was the company's first American offering designed to compete with European supercars.

At a starting price of $80,790, the GT-R is not cheap by conventional standards, but pitted against, say, a Maserati GranTurino at $117,500 it's a downright steal. It also competes favorably with the 911 Carrera, which starts at a similar $76,300, and, in base form, is nearly a full second slower to 60 miles per hour. Time is money, after all.

Nissan and Infiniti Recall 16,000 SUVs

February 19, 2008
Nissan is recalling 16,365 Murano and Infiniti EX 35 SUVs to fix a software program that may cause passenger air bags to fail.

Nissan Recall Expanded to 654,000 Sentras and Altimas

November 21, 2007
Nissan Motor Co. is expanding a U.S. recall of Sentra and Altima sedans to repair a defective crankshaft sensor in 2002 and 2005 to 2006 models. The faulty sensor could cause the engine to shut off.

Nissan reported to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration that the recall covers about 653,910 vehicles with 2.5-liter engines.

The sensor's location may expose it to temperature changes that would interrupt signals the sensor sends to the engine control module, according to Nissan. Without those signals, the control module may shut off the engine in low-speed driving, Nissan said.

Nissan Sentra Recall Announced


Nissan is recalling 276,000 Sentras to replace a faulty engine part. Recalls by General Motors and Ford were also announced by federal regulators.

The Nissan recall covers Sentras built between January 2000 and March 2003. A piece of foam insulation in a box housing the engine computer can emit sulfur, possibly causing corrosion in the computer that can lead to rough running or stalling engines.

Nissan will also recall 24,300 Infiniti FX SUVs to fix a brake caliper bolt that can come loose, leading to brake failure or a flat tire. The recall covers FX35 and FX45 models built between November 2002 and July 2003.

Other Recalls

The Nissan actions were among several vehicle recalls announced by the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

General Motors will recall 95,690 Buick Park Avenue sedans built between October 2001 and June 2002 to fix a fuel regulator that can leak, potentially causing a engine fire.

Volvo will recall 36,000 S40 and V40 cars built between May 1999 and May 2000 to fix a brake vacuum pump that could fail and lead to a crash.
