The Japanese based automaker Nissan has recently announced a recall for the 2012 Versa model, because of a flaw in the model’s transmission which might cause a collision with other vehicles or pedestrians.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, owners of the 2012 Nissan Versa will have to take a trip back to the dealers because of an issue with the model’s transmission. The NHTSA is saying that drivers might experience interference between the shifter rod and the shifter knob, and owners can shift the car out of a parking lot without depressing the brake pedal, which might eventually cause the model to crash into another vehicle or even hit a pedestrian, resulting in some serious injuries.
Nissan says that 36,608 units of the Versa, manufactured between 9th of June 2011 and 13th of January 2012, will be affected by tis recall. The car company will begin noticing both customers and dealers about this recall by February 20, and the problem will be fixed free of charge. Nissan or the NHTSA didn’t say anything about possible reports on the transmission issue which might have been received by the Versa owners. If you have any questions about the recall you can contact Nissan at 800-647-7261 or the NHTSA at 888-327-4236.
