Nissan Motor Co. plans to recall as many as 143,000 cars built from 2008 to 2010 to replace a tire-pressure monitoring system nut that may corrode and crack in areas with heavy concentrations of road salt, the government said this week.
The cracking of the nut in the monitoring system could cause it to fall out of the sensor-transmitter that it secures, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said in a report on its Web site. If that happens, and the driver disregards the monitoring-system lamp that lights up, the tire will quickly lose air pressure at a consistent rate resulting in a flat tire increasing the risk of a crash.
The automaker said it plans to tell dealers by Nov. 6 and begin notifying owners Nov. 9. The company will ask owners to bring their vehicles to a Nissan or Infiniti dealership, which will replace the nut free of charge, NHTSA said. Most of the vehicles to be recalled will be 2008 Nissan Rogues, the company letter said. Other vehicles potentially involved are 2009 Nissan Muranos, 2009 Nissan Cubes and 2008-10 Infiniti M35s and M45s.
