Nissan Recalls Pathfinder, Xterra and Frontier Vehicles Due to Faulty Wheel Hubs
Nissan is recalling certain 2012 Frontier, Pathfinder, and Xterra two-wheel drive vehicles. These vehicles may have been equipped with front wheel hubs that may not meet the design hardness specifications.
A wheel hub that was manufactured below hardness specification may wear prematurely and eventually crack. If the vehicle is driven in this condition, the wheel hub may break, possibly resulting in a vehicle crash.
The Pathfinder, Xterra and Frontier vehicles affected by this recall were manufactured between June 19, 2012, and July 12, 2012.
Nissan will notify the owners of all affected vehicles. Dealers will replace the left and right side front wheel hub assemblies free of charge. For additional information, owners may contact Nissan Customer Service toll-free at 800-647-7261.
