Nissan Recalls 44,000 Titan Crew Cab and Titan XD Crew Cab Trucks
The rear seatbelt assembly on the affected vehicles may not adequately protect the occupant's head
Nissan North America is recalling 44,000 model year 2016-2017 Nissan Titan Crew Cab and Titan XD Crew Cab trucks.
What's the problem?
In the event of a crash, the rear seatbelt assembly on the affected vehicles may not adequately protect the occupant's head, allowing it to contact the D-ring bolt trim cap.
As such, these vehicles fail to conform to Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 201, "Occupant Protection in Interior Impact."
If the occupant's head contacts the D-ring bolt trim cap during a crash, there is an increased risk of injury.
What happens next?
Nissan will notify owners of the recalled Titan Crew Cab and Titan XD Crew Cab trucks beginning in late September 2017. Dealers will then install energy absorbing material to the C-pillar finishers and replace the seatbelt bolt and bolt cap. These repairs will be made free of charge to vehicle owners.
