The Japanese based automaker Nissan has recently announced a recall for the Frontier pickup trucks because of a possible fire risk.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, a total of 13,535 units of the Nissan Frontier pickup trucks will be affected by this problem and their owners will have to take a trip back to the dealers in order to get the problem with the possible fire risk solve. The NHTSA says that in the affected vehicles, the circuit breaker has been installed incorrectly and, because of this, a wire harness contacting a metal bolt on the A-pillar can cause a short circuit, which may lead to a fire.
The car manufacturer isn’t aware of any possible accidents or injuries related to this problem and it seems that it has decided to recall all models from 2012 through 2014. The recall is expected to begin soon and the necessary repairs / replacements will be made free of charge. No more details on the recall are being known so far but if you would like to find out more on the subject, you can contact the NHTSA hotline at 1-888-327-4236.
