2016-2017 Nissan Titan and Titan XD: Recall Alert

2016 Nissan Titan XD

Vehicles Affected: Approximately 45,000 model-year 2016-17 Nissan Titan crew cabs built between Sept. 29, 2015, and Feb. 24, 2017, and model-year 2016-17 Titan XD crew cabs built between Aug. 7, 2015, and Feb. 24, 2017

The Problem: The rear seat belt assembly may not adequately prevent occupants' heads from hitting a D-ring bolt trim cap, increasing the risk of injury in the event of a crash.

The Fix: Nissan will notify owners, and dealers and will install energy-absorbing material into the C-pillar and replace the seat belt bolts and bolt caps free of charge.

What Owners Should Do: The recall is expected to begin Sept. 26. Owners can contact the manufacturer at 800-647-7261, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration vehicle safety hotline at 888-327-4236 or go to www.safercar.gov to check their vehicle identification number and learn more.

Won't affect the Nissan Titan they'll be in 2ND place duking it out for #1 with GM soon. Mean while Ford goes broke and gets shut down. HAHAHA!

GM--Since you make so much sense, I have to ask: Can stealing the taxpayers money and dumping shareholders only be done by General Motors?

Yep that's why they call them GARBAGE MOTORS (AKA) GOVERNMENT MOTORS HAHAHAH. I bet Johnny B====Do is gonna come out typing something abou his trash company.

Great job Nissan, Ford wouldn't do this because their the cheap, broke scum of the auto world.

Ford is better than GARBAGE MOTORS. LOL

Ford would have hidden incriminating documents on this problem from investigators.


"Even as federal investigators opened and closed five investigations based on Ford's assurances that it knew of no particular defect, the company never provided regulators with more than a dozen documents that would have shed light on the problem. Neither the notes from the board meeting nor the Ford memo was ever provided to federal investigators. Ford continued to deny there were problems for the next nine years, in spite of repeated internal company studies, consumer complaints, numerous reports of deadly and other serious accidents, wrongful death and personal injury lawsuits and warranty claims that topped 40 percent in some years."

"Judge Ballachey ordered Ford to disclose details of several sealed lawsuits. One of these cases involved an April 14, 1990 accident. Andy Pham, a 19-year-old who rented a 1990 Mercury Sable in San Jose was driving to Reno with seven passengers when his car stalled, hit the center divider and rolled over and crashed off the road. Mr. Pham and two others died in the crash. Another passenger, Asali Johnson, was left a quadriplegic while the other passengers suffered less severe injuries."

Why are we talking about Ford and GM on a Nissan post? There are 5 players in the full sized truck market and every post gets neutered down to a discussion about two brands. Even posts that have nothing to do with either brand. I like that Nissan isn't in the news once or twice a month for recalls. When your trying to outsell everyone your bound to cut corners and make mistakes.

Incorrect. When you selling Thousands of trucks per day you'll get problems, there hasn't been enough XD's sold to even warrant a recall, people are barely driving them and are probably reporting issues on them now, as I type.

Ford's cheap timing chains aren't mistakes. They're guaranteed income for Ford dealer service centers. $2000 a pop. Lots of service technicians are putting their kids through college thanks to the ecoboost.
