What are the defects?

Due to a manufacturing issue, there may be weld separation on the right hand side of the towbar attachment bracket. As a result, the towbar cross member and bracket could separate and the towbar could detach from the vehicle.

What are the hazards?

If the towbar detaches from the vehicle while towing, this will causing a loss of control of the trailer and increase the risk of an accident that may result in injury or death of vehicle occupants and/or other road users.

What should consumers do?

When parts become available in mid-May 2021, consumers will be advised to contact their Nissan Dealer to organise for the inspection of the towbar compliance plate to determine whether their towbar is affected by this recall. If affected, a replacement towbar will be provided, free of charge.
