Nissan NV van recall for 2013, recalls begin in April

If you are the owner of a Nissan NV van from 2012 -2013 then you will be notified soon of an impending recall, with the affected vehicles being manufactured from December 20, 2012 to January 4, 2013. Okay, so we know what you are thinking, who would have one of these in the first place, but these vans are pretty good, even if they do look a bit on the ugly side.

The recalls are to begin on April 8, and is because of an issue with the transmission lever, well the selector plate lock clip to be more precise, because in some cases they have been installed incorrectly. If you do have an affected vehicle then there is a possibility the vibration from the road surface could cause the lever to select a different gear.

For example, if the plate does become lose you could be stationary and believe the transmission is on the park position, when you may be in a different gear, which could have serious consequences.

Thankfully Nissan is already on top of the situation and will replace the selector plate at no cost to you. If you have any questions in regards to this latest recall then you are asked to contact Nissan on 1-800-647-7261, or the NHTSA on 1-888-327-4236.
