  1. Nissan says they put the wrong wheel nuts on a small number of 2021 Rogues.

    This can cause vibrations that break the wheel studs, allowing the whole assembly to seperate from the vehicle. Aww, nuts.…

  2. The fuel lines can slip off the 2021 Rogue's fuel pump

    leading to the first recall of the brand new 3rd generation SUV. The lines were removed during manual checks of the fuel pumps, but they might not have been fully locked back into place during reinstallation.…

  3. The Rogue's rear lift-gate has "stays" that are supposed to keep the lift-gate in place when you open it.

    Only, they aren't staying at all.

    So not only do you have to try and load the groceries while keeping your kid from running in the parking lot, but you might have to dodge falling doors while you're at it:

    "The rear lift gate stay provides power assist to the rear lift gate and operates under high pressure gas. If the anti-corrosion coating is insufficient (there can be) a sudden release of pressure. The rear lift gate suddenly falling down can cause severe injuries to anyone near the gate."

    This has happened in enough 2014-16 Rogue's to warrant a recall. The affected vehicles were built between July 31, 2013, and January 16, 2016.

  4. Anyone else getting the feeling there's a major issue with Nissan's Occupant Classification System (OCS)?

    For roughly the 103rd time – ok, 4th – Nissan is recalling their defective OCS. And this one is a doozy at 3.8 million vehicles.

    "Nissan says the occupant classification systems in the front passenger seats can turn off because the systems classify an adult as a child or classify a seat as empty even if an adult is in the seat."

    That will disable the airbags for someone who really needs it.

    "Nissan says in the case of a child classification, the system is designed to illuminate the airbag light indicating the airbag is turned off. However, if the initial classification is “empty seat,” the light will not illuminate and there is no indication that the airbag is suppressed."

    Does any part of this thing work?

    My sentiments exactly

    Nissan has been accused of covering up the OCS issue and issuing repairs that didn't work in a lawsuit.

  5. The 2014 Nissan Rogue has some fuel pump covers that just can't seem to keep it together.

    [Failure] occurs because of nickel plating material that can detach or flake from the fuel pump's inner or outer cover ... Nissan says there is a space between the impeller and the fuel pump cover, a vacant area that can hold detached plating particles and cause the impeller to stop rotating.

    If this sounds familiar, Nissan issued a recall for the same exact thing last year. They just forgot one teeny, tiny detail --- to recall all the affected vehicles. Hopefully this expansion fixes that.

  6. 45,000 Rogue owners should be careful where they park because the SUVs are going rogue (you had to see that coming).

    The [2015 Rogue] transmissions could move out of the "Park" position by mistake. Parking the vehicle and walking away could cause the Rogue to roll away, especially if parked on an incline.

    Normally you need to depress the brake pedal fully before you can shift the transmission into gear, but the Rogue has a faulty shift selector knob that is bypassing this important safety feature.

    The affected Rogues are all from the 2015 model year and built between 02/10/15 and 05/13/15. The recall is expected to begin at the end of December and full details are available on our site.

  7. Nissan's Occupant Classification System (OCS) has been the subject of two recalls in the past couple years, but a lawsuit says the fixes aren't working.

    Plaintiff Matthew Senci filed the proposed class-action lawsuit that alleges the vehicles have occupant classification system software that can incorrectly classify a front passenger seat as empty when it's occupied by an adult passenger.

    The error can cause the airbag to deactivate and fail to deploy in a crash and the lawsuit alleges Nissan has known about the problem since at least 2012 due to complaints and warranty claims.

    The first "limited" recall was in February 2013, but the fix was ineffective. A second, larger recall was announced in March 2014, but once again the lawsuit says the fix didn't do diddly.

    The lawsuit, Matthew Senci v. Nissan North America, Inc., accuses the automaker of unfair and deceptive acts and seeks damages for the decreased value of the cars.
