Nissan—Nissan T32 X-Trail
What are the defects?
The paint coating applied during the supplier's manufacturing process of the Back Door Gas Stay does not comply with the design requirement for anti-corrosion. In extremely rare circumstances, the outer tube of the Gas Stay may corrode and crack resulting in the loss of the pressurised gas inside the Gas Stay.
What are the hazards?
If the defect occurs, the Gas Stay would be unable to support the opening of the Back Door posing a potential injury hazard.
What should consumers do?
A letter will be sent to affected owners when parts are available, which is likely to occur in Fourth Quarter 2016.
