POWER TRAIN:AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION:COOLING UNIT AND LINES

Recall number: 14V142000
Recall date: 03/26/2014

Problem Summary:

NISSAN NORTH AMERICA (NISSAN) IS RECALLING CERTAIN MODEL YEAR 2013 PATHFINDER VEHICLES MANUFACTURED APRIL 18, 2012, THROUGH OCTOBER 3, 2012, AND EQUIPPED WITH A CONTINUOUSLY VARIABLE TRANSMISSION (CVT). IN THE AFFECTED VEHICLES, THE INTERNAL OIL COOLER (ITOC) HOSE MAY DETACH FROM THE COOLER DUE TO INADEQUATE CLAMPING FORCE, ALLOWING TRANSMISSION FLUID TO LEAK.

Consequence:

THE LOSS OF TRANSMISSION FLUID COULD CAUSE THE TRANSMISSION TO FUNCTION IMPROPERLY AND THE VEHICLE TO STOP ACCELERATING, INCREASING THE RISK OF A CRASH.

Corrective Action:

NISSAN WILL NOTIFY OWNERS, AND DEALERS WILL INSTALL AN OIL HOSE REPAIR KIT, FREE OF CHARGE. THE RECALL WILL BEGIN IN MAY 2014. OWNERS MAY CONTACT NISSAN AT 1-800-647-7261.

IN THE AFFECTED VEHICLES, THE OCCUPANT CLASSIFICATION SYSTEM (OCS) SOFTWARE MAY INCORRECTLY CLASSIFY THE PASSENGER SEAT AS EMPTY, WHEN IT IS OCCUPIED BY AN ADULT.

Consequence:

Corrective Action:

NISSAN WILL NOTIFY OWNERS, AND DEALERS WILL UPDATE THE OCS SOFTWARE, FREE OF CHARGE. THE RECALL IS EXPECTED TO BEGIN IN MID-APRIL 2014. OWNERS MAY CONTACT NISSAN AT 1-800-647-7261.
