Vehicles Affected: Approximately 211 model-year 2014 Nissan Leaf electric cars manufactured Feb. 28 through March 12, 2014
The Problem: A welding problem could reduce the structural integrity of the vehicle if it’s involved in a crash. This increases the risk of injury.
The Fix: Dealers will inspect and replace the affected parts for free.
What Owners Should Do: Nissan will notify owners starting in mid-June. Owners can call Nissan at 800-647-7261 or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration at 888-327-4236 for more information.
