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.
