The 2013 NIssan Frontier was involved in the recall.
Nobody likes to hear that something might be wrong with their car…particularly when that potential something wrong . But when you can get free repairs to ensure the health of your vehicle and your own safety, there’s something of a silver lining to be found.
Nissan has issued a recall affecting 13,535 Frontier pickup trucks in the United States. The reason is an electrical issue that could cause a fire; however, no fires or injuries have been reported. The potential issue is with a circuit breaker that was installed incorrectly in model year 2012 through 2014 trucks.
According to the NHTSA’s recall notice, incorrectly-installed circuit breakers could lead to the main wire harness facing outward and contacting a metal bolt on the vehicle’s A-pillar. This could result in wearing, shortages, and eventually, fire.
All owners of the affected trucks will receive a notification in the mail about the recall. They can then make an appointment with any Nissan dealership to have their trucks inspected and repaired free of charge. Notifications will being going out early next month.
2012-14 Frontier owners may contact Nissan at 1-800-647-7261, and they may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or through www.safercar.gov.

The Infiniti M is affected in the Nissan Recall.
Nissan announced a recall of 908,900 vehicles worldwide, with nearly 100,000 models being affected in the United States.
This recall has been announced due to the lack of acceleration in Japanese models like the Serena, X-Trail, Lafesta and Fuga, and the United States model the Infiniti M sedan. At this time, no official recall notice has been released; however Nissan did confirm the recall with Reuters.
“The accelerator pedal’s sensor could become unstable, potentially resulting in less-than-intended acceleration and in worst case, a stalled engine,” said spokesman Chris Keeffe. No accidents or injuries have been reported to Nissan.
If your vehicle is affected by this Nissan recall, bring it into Bates Nissan and our service department will replace the accelerator pedals and the engine control program will be fixed to address the problem. Total repairs will take about 90 minutes.
2013 Nissan Pathfinder
Last week, Nissan announced they may have to recall 110,000 2013 Nissan Pathfinders and the Infiniti JX crossovers. The possible recall is due to customer complaints about losing power suddenly while driving. The issue has been pointed to faulty transmission cooler line connections regarding the continuously variable transmission, which is in the Pathfinder and the JX.
At this time, the problem is being investigated and no recall has been announced, but the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration says a recall is likely.
