NHTSA Campaign Number: 16V219000
Nissan Recall Campaign Number:
Vehicles Affected: Certain 2014-2016 Nissan Rogue vehicles manufactured from July 31, 2013 through January 16, 2016. Approximately 108,503 vehicles are expected for inclusion in this recall campaign.
In the affected vehicles, the rear lift gate support stays may corrode due to insufficient anti-corrosion treatment.
Corrosion of one or both of the rear lift gate support stays could cause a sudden release of pressure. If this occurs, the support stays may break off, increasing the risk of injury.
Nissan will notify owners, and dealers will replace the rear tailgate stays, free of charge. Parts are not currently available. Owners will be sent interim notifications by mid-June 2016. A second notice will be sent when remedy parts become available. Owners may contact Nissan customer service at 1-800-647-7261.
