2010 Nissan Frontier recalled in the United States

Article by Christian A., on August 27, 2010

Because of failure to meet the requirements of child restraint anchorage systems (federal motor vehicle safety standard no. 225), Nissan is issuing a service campaign in the US and is calling back 951 Frontier vehicles.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) said that the affected vehicles include those produced from June 10, 2010 through June 26, 2010.

The safety notice posted on the NHTSA website stated that the welding of the tether anchor wire to the seat gusset on the restraints is out-of-specification.

According to Nissan's engineering judgment, the tether anchor could separate from the seat when undergoing tests under the conditions required by the standard.

During a crash, there's a possibility that the tether anchorage will separate from the vehicle seat and increase the risk of injury to the passenger.

The manufacturer said that authorized dealers will replace the seat gusset containing the tether anchorage with a new one free of charge.

The safety recall is slated to start on or before September 1. Earlier this year, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) named the Nissan Frontier as the safest pickup in case of a rollover accident.

The IIHS said that five small pickups were tested and that the Nissan Frontier emerged as the best, since its roof rated "good."
