Recalls seem to be happening a lot lately. This time, it’s with the Nissan Titan and Frontier pickups. Nissan trucks for the last few years have improved and as a result, so have sales. However, they’re experiencing a dangerous problem that could put owners and those around them at risk. Nissan just recalled over 200,000 Nissan trucks produced in the last three years. Here’s why your Nissan truck might roll away while parked.

Which Nissan trucks have a recall?

Since this recall impacts over 200,000 Nissan trucks, we know it’s more than one model year. According to USA Today, Nissan Frontier and Nissan Titan pickup trucks from 2020 through 2023 are affected. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration says 202,223 vehicles are potentially involved in the recall. However, the NHTSA estimated that only 1% of those pickups might actually have the defect. As a result, Nissan truck owners should get the recall remedied as soon as possible, but it’s unlikely their truck will experience the issue.

Next, you might wonder what could cause vehicles like the Frontier and Titan to roll away. Unfortunately, the transmission parking pawl is at risk. Moreover, it prevents vehicles from moving while they’re shifted to park. For whatever reason, the parking pawl isn’t properly engaging when some Nissan trucks are shifted to park. As a result, there’s a chance a parked 2020-2023 Titan or Frontier rolls away. As you might’ve guessed, this can be very dangerous if the trucks roll into traffic, a building, or anything else.

How can I prevent my Nissan truck from rolling away?

According to USA Today, owners are advised to engage their parking brake every time they park. If you’re the owner of a Nissan Frontier or Titan made in the last three years, use it wisely. While it’s unlikely you’re part of the 1% of defect pickups impacted by this recall, you don’t want to find out the hard way. Applying the parking brake while parked should remove the rollaway risk, keeping a parked pickup in place until you return.

How do I get my recall remedied?

First, owners can contact Nissan’s customer service at 1-800-867-7669 with any questions about the recall. Unfortunately, it sometimes takes some time for dealers to get the necessary parts to repair a recall. As a result, you’ll want to call your local dealer and get your name on their list early. While not always the case, some recalls get limited parts to the dealer, so it’s first come, first serve. If you’re one of the first people to request the recall and get yourself on a call list for when a remedy is available, you’re guaranteed not to be part of the 1% for very long.

Over 200,000 Nissan trucks have a recall

Recall alert! If you’re the owner of a 2020, 2021, 2022, or 2023 Nissan Frontier or Titan, your truck could be impacted. Although the defect isn’t common, you’ll want to avoid it altogether. Unfortunately, it’s dangerous since your pickup can roll out of park. Be sure to contact your local dealer for the recall as soon as possible, and in the meantime, always engage the parking brake. This provides insurance in case the transmission parking pawl fails to engage.
