Nissan recalls 26k 2012 Titan and Armada models due to faulty labels
Nissan is recalling 26,626 model year 2012 Titan and Armada vehicles, manufactured from August 12, 2011 through March 13, 2012. The affected vehicles contain an improper part 567 certification label, which is supposed to contain the vehicle’s rim size details. A faulty certification label put the Armada and Titan at odds with Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard number 110. Additionally, a rim size omission may lead to an incorrect tire/wheel combination, which may increase the chance of a crash according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
On May 14, 2012 Nissan will begin supplying Armada and Titan owners with new labels and instructions on how to install the label. Customers who do not with to install the label may take their vehicle to a Nissan dealer to have the label installed free of charge. Nissan owners who wish to find out more information before May 14 may contact Nissan Customer Service at 1-615-725-1000. Concerned customers may also contact the NHTSA at 1-888-327-4236 or online at www.safercar.gov.
