NHTSA Campaign Number: 14V419000
Nissan Recall Campaign Number:
Vehicles Affected: Certain 2014 Nissan NV passenger vans manufactured from March 14, 2014 through May 15, 2014 and equipped with seat belt retractors from Faurecia Automotive Systems. Approximately 594 vehicles are expected for inclusion in this recall campaign.
Cause: The seat belt retractor bolts on the second, third, and/or fourth row seats may be improperly torqued or missing on affected vehicles. This can yield a faulty seat belt anchoring point.
Concern: Improperly torqued or missing seat belt retractor bolts may result in a seat belt anchoring point that is not secure. In the event of a motor vehicle crash, this could place vehicle occupants at an increased risk of injury.
Correction: Nissan will notify owners with specific instructions for having the seat belt retractors inspected and repaired as necessary, free of charge. This recall campaign is expected to begin in September 2014 and vehicle owners may contact Nissan customer service at 1-800-647-7261.
NOTE: Use extreme caution if you own or regularly operate a vehicle affected by this condition. Avoid allowing passengers to occupy rear seating areas until this problem is rectified and have it repaired as soon as possible.
NHTSA Campaign Number: 14V418000
Nissan Recall Campaign Number:
Vehicles Affected: Certain 2014 Nissan Frontier Crew Cab trucks manufactured from June 11, 2014 through June 26, 2014. Approximately 1,319 vehicles are expected for inclusion under this recall campaign.
Cause: The affected vehicles may have been assembled using a seat belt anchor nut that is out of specification. This condition may result in an inability to properly torque the seat belt anchoring bolt.
Concern: If the seat belt anchor bolt cannot be properly secured into the anchor plate, this could place vehicle occupants at an increased risk of injury during a motor vehicle crash.
Correction: Nissan will notify owners with detailed instructions regarding the necessary repairs, free of charge. There is presently no repair strategy or notification schedule in place. You may contact Nissan customer service at 1-800-647-7261.
NOTE: You may test your safety belts for secure anchoring by pulling on the anchor point. If you feel that you own or regularly operate a truck that is affected by this condition, use caution when driving and avoid aggressive high-speed driving maneuvers. Have this condition rectified as soon as possible.
