Armada Transmissions Aren’t Engaging Into Park

Next time you leave your vehicle in park, don’t count on it being there when you get back. According to Nissan a problem with the transmission can make it impossible to actually get your vehicle in park. Specifically interference between the parking rod and transmission house can cause the parking pawl to not engage. And yes, pawl is a real word (but I admittedly had to look it up).

The problem affects 2015 Armadas built between September 15 and October 14, 2014.

Nissan hasn’t announced when the recall will begin. Once it does dealers will inspect affected cars and in some cases replace the entire transmission. Owners with questions can contact Nissan at 800-647-7261.
