7 Nissan recalls in 2018 – VIN lookup

In 2018, Nissan announced 7 recalls that affected 5 of its models, according to the Rapex notifications. How to check your VIN for free to see if any of them is also relevant to your car?

Nissan had the most recalls in the second half of 2018, but the first problem occurred in February with the NV400 and their fuel filter holder. Fuel leakage is threatened with cars produced between 12/2016 and 2/2018. Equally important is the NV400´s recall announced in June – the link between the steering and steering gear may not be properly screwed on cars manufactured between May 2016 and June 2017.



In April, two recalls were announced for Nissan Micra with production date from September to October 2017. Cracks may form in the front wheel hub, and the seat belt retractor sensor may not work as expected.

Due to a defective ignition switch, Nissan recalls the Juke and NV200 models in September. Vehicles with a production date between 4/2017 and 6/2017 are affected.

Nissan Qashqai also had two recalls in 2018. One due to the faulty software of the Body Control Module (6/2017 – 2/2018) and the other due to incorrect GCW (Gross Combination Weight) information on the VIN label (6/2017 – 10/2017).

* We’ve divided all the recalls according to the models into the table at the end of the article. 



How can you check the recalls by VIN?

Even if you do not find your car in the table below, it does not mean it was not the subject of a recall sometime in the past. The best way to verify whether a particular car is affected with some recall is to contact a Nissan Authorized Service and ask for the VIN to be checked not only for recalls but also for various service bulletins.

It will only cost you time because such information is provided for free. Free of charge are also all the repairs that are related to the recall. It does not matter whether you are the first, second or even third owner. It does not even matter whether you have been to Nissan authorized service regularly, occasionally or never before.

What is a VIN code?

The VIN code is a unique identification number that is embossed on the body of the car and shown on the ID card. In some cars, it can also be found in the frame under the windscreen. It is made up of a unique combination of 17 letters and numbers.
