|US NHTSA CAMPAIGN ID:|| 01V282|
|Potential Number Of Units Affected:|| 31,000|
On certain 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 struts could cause one or both brackets to bend, resulting in the struts detaching from the brackets 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.Remedy:
Dealers will replace the strut brackets. The manufacturer has reported that owner notification would begin during September 2001. Owners who do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact Nissan at 1-800-647-7261.
Dates of Manufacture:
December 2000 - June 2001
