Vehicles Affected: About 104,439 model-year 2011-2013 Nissan Juke crossovers
The Problem: Nissan is conducting this voluntary recall due to an issue with the engine timing chain. In some of the vehicles, the timing chain may deteriorate over time and distort, according to the automaker. If the resulting warning light is ignored, the chain could eventually break.
The Fix: Nissan began notifying owners this month; dealers will replace the timing chain, chain guides and crank sprocket for free.
What Owners Should Do: Owners can call Nissan at 800-647-7261 for more info.
