Nissan Motor Co (Australia) Pty Ltd — Nissan D23 Navara MY2020
What are the defects?
The steering knuckle bolts may not be sufficiently tightened, which can cause the steering knuckle, hub and the bearing assemblies to become detached. If the front knuckle bolts gradually loosen, vehicle occupants may experience noise and vibration. If the vehicle is driven in this condition, the four knuckle bolts may completely loosen, resulting in wheel detachment.
What are the hazards?
If the wheel detaches, there is an increased risk of an accident that may result in injury or death of vehicle occupants and/or other road users.
What should consumers do?
Nissan will contact affected vehicle owners in writing. Consumers will be advised to contact their Nissan Dealer to organise for an inspection to be carried out, and if necessary, replacement of the knuckle, hub, and bearing assembly.
The inspection and any replacement of parts will be at no cost to owners.
For further information, consumers can contact the Nissan Customer Service Centre on 1800 035 035 (Monday to Friday, 8.30am to 6pm AEST).
