It’s been a quiet year for Nissan as far as major recalls are concerned, but the automaker has a new one out affecting nearly 180,200 of its Frontier mid-size and Titan full-size pickup trucks for a potential rollaway risk.

Affected trucks include model-year 2020-22 Frontiers and Titans. The issue concerns the transmission parking pawl, a pivoted bar that slides over the teeth of a ratchet wheel to lock the transmission in the selected gear. The pawl may not engage when the vehicle is shifted into Park, which can result in a vehicle rollaway, increasing the risk of a crash.

Nissan is still developing a remedy, and owners are advised to apply the parking brake every time they park their truck. Interim owner-notification letters will be mailed July 20 and a second letter will follow once a remedy has been found. Those with questions can call the automaker at 800-867-7669, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236 or visit its website to check their vehicle identification number and learn more.
