Nissan To Recall Thousands Of Trucks And SUVs

Nissan Motor Co. is planning to recall 48,700 trucks and SUVs for problems with a suspension part that could lead to a rough ride.

Spokesman Colin Price says the company is working on details with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and expects the recall to begin this week.

It will cover some, but not all, 2010 Nissan Armadas, Frontiers, Titans, Pathfinders and Xterras and Infiniti QX56 models.

The Armada, Titan and Infiniti QX56 are produced at the company's Canton plant. The Frontier, Pathfinder and Xterra are produced at its Smyrna, Tenn., plant.

The problem centers on a lower suspension control link, which may not have been welded properly. It could cause the bushing collar to crack, leading to a rough and noisy ride. No accidents have been reported.

    i've had new frontiers for the last 18 yrs, never had problem one with any of them. the staff at the new bern dealership is great, which keeps me going back.

    Bought a brand new Nissan years ago and within a week I was sitting on the side of the road broke down. Mechanic told me that some are in such bad shape when they come off the ship, they engine has to be rebuilt before it can be sold as new.

    Nissan sucks anyway. Had one -will never own another one. Seemed like a matchbox when compared even to Toyota, plus terrible customer service and poor, poor attitudes in the showroom (from two different dealerships).
