09/24/01 Vehicle description: sport utility vehicles. some of the brackets used to attach the two gas struts to the rear door (hatch) may have been improperly made. at high ambient temperatures, the increase in gas pressure in the strut(s) could cause one or both brackets to bend, resulting in the struts detaching from the bracket(s) when opening or closing the rear door.

If both struts detach from the brackets, the door will rapidly fall down, possibly striking someone and causing serious injury.

08/19/10 Electrical and Air Conditioning Nissan is recalling forty-six certain model year 2002 pathfinder and infiniti qx4 vehicles manufactured from august 24, 2001 through august 28, 2001. the air bag inflator contains propellant wafers that are required to properly deploy the front passenger air bag. due to improper propellant wafer installation during the air bag inflator assembly process, some air bag inflators may be missing one of the wafers. as a result, the remaining wafers in the inflator used for the deployment of the front passenger air bag may, over time, break up into powder due to normal vibration experienced while driving. this causes the combustion rate of the propellant to increase inside the inflator, which can lead to internal pressure rising suddenly during air bag deployment.

The inflator housing may rupture and pieces of the inflator could strike and injure vehicle occupants.

Nissan will notify the owners of the forty-six affected vehicles. dealers will replace the front passenger air bag module assembly with a new one free of charge. the safety recall began on august 19, 2010. owners may contact nissan at 1-800-647-7261 and infiniti at 1-800-662-6200.

Infiniti QX4 Recalls

Some things are often misunderstood about recalls and technical service bulletins (TSBs). Plus a disclaimer.

  1. Recalls do not have to be issued only because something is prone to failure. NHTSA (a government agency) can only require a recall if a failure will affect safety, emissions, fuel economy, or compliance with some other regulation or law. Manufacturers can voluntarily recall cars for problems that do not affect these, though.
  2. Recalls often apply to only some cars of a specific model year, rather than all of them. You should receive a letter from the manufacturer if your car has been recalled. You can also check with the dealer, which will know which (if any) recalls pertain to your car.
  3. The primary purpose of TSBs is to inform dealers about known problems with a car and how to fix them. They are not the same as recalls. As with recalls, TSBs often only apply to some cars, not the entire model year.
  4. Dealers often will not provide a preventive repair just because a problem described in a TSB might happen to your car. They'll usually want to observe symptoms that the problem is already affecting your car.
  5. Even if there are symptoms, a manufacturer doesn't have to pick up the cost of a TSB repair if the car is out of warranty, though sometimes they do.

We provide the text of recalls and TSBs as provided by NHTSA. There can be errors in the text. If you sign up for notifications in My Garage, we will try to get these to do, but for various reasons (some beyond our control) cannot guarantee you will receive them. When in doubt about a recall or TSB, contact the dealer.
