Recall roundup: 2012 Nissan Juke image

The Japanese based automaker Nissan has recently announced a recall for the 2012 Juke urban crossver because of a problem with the rear seatback.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, about 11, 076 units of the 2012 Nissan Juke will be affected by this recall and their owners will have to take a trip back to the dealers in order to get the problem with the rear seatback fixed. The NHTSA is saying that the rear seatback striker might become partially separated in case of a crash, which is increasing the risk of injury to the rear seat passengers.

“Due to an incomplete weld penetration, the rear seatback striker may partially separate in a crash. In the event of a crash, the rear seatback may not be secured, increasing the risk of injury to the rear seat occupants”, as the NHTSA is saying in the recalls summary of the problem.

The 2012 Nissan Juke units affected by this recall have been manufactured between the 3rd of February, 2012 and the 26th of May, 2012. The problem has been discovered during an internal component testing and Nissan says that no other vehicle, including the ones from Infiniti, will be affected, except for the Juke. The recall will begin at the end of July and owners of the 2012 Nissan Juke can contact Nissan at 1-800-647-7261.
