Recall roundup: Nissan Juke for faulty timing chain image

The Japanese based automaker Nissan has recently issued a recall for the pre-facelifted Juke, because of a problem with the timing chain.

According to the guys at Autoblog, a total of 104,439 units of the Nissan Juke will become affected by this recall and their owners will have to take a trip back to the dealers in order to get the timing chain problem solved. Our source is saying that because of this issue, a warning light may pop up in the instrument cluster sometimes and, in some extreme cases, the chain could even snap.

“Nissan is conducting a voluntary service campaign on MY2011-13 Nissan JUKE vehicles to have the engine timing chain replaced. Nissan will begin notifying owners of potentially affected vehicles in May 2014, asking them to bring their vehicle in for service”, as Nissan told Autoblog.

The affected Nissan Juke vehicles are from the 2011 and 2013 model year and their owners will be notified on the recall. The company’s dealership network will replace the timing chain, the cranks sprocket and the chain guides free of charge. The recall will begin this month. For more details on the subject, owners should contact their nearest Nissan dealership.
