The NHTSA report states some of the oil filter bolts may break at the oil filter and cause an oil leak, which would in turn cause the oil pressure to drop and potentially, if ignored, allow the engine to seize. Others models potentially involved include the NV van, Xterra, and Pathfinder.
Nissan will noitify owners and dealers will replace the connector bolts free of charge. The safety recall is expected to begin on or about January 19, 2012. Contact Nissan at 800-647-7261 for more information or go to www.safecar.gov.
