Nissan is recalling 11,076 model-year 2012 versions of the Juke compact hatchback due to problems with the rear seatback, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
The affected vehicles were manufactured from Feb. 3 through May 26, 2012, (check your vehicle’s build date on a sticker on the driver-side doorjamb) and have a rear seatback that could become unsecured due to an improper weld. This could lead to an increased risk of injury.
Nissan will notify owners later this month, and dealers will replace the affected parts free of charge. Owners can call Nissan at 800-647-7261 or NHTSA's vehicle safety hotline at 888-327-4236 for more info.
