2014 Nissan Pathfinder, Rogue, Infiniti QX60 Recalled for Possible Wheel Separation


Just the Facts:
  • Nissan North America is recalling 334 2014 Nissan Pathfinder, Rogue and Infiniti QX60 crossovers because a loose lug nut could lead to wheel separation.

WASHINGTON Nissan North America is recalling 334 2014 Nissan Pathfinder, Rogue and Infiniti QX60 crossovers because a loose lug nut could lead to wheel separation, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

"The right side wheels of the affected vehicles may have one lug nut each that was not properly tightened," said NHTSA in its summary of the problem. "If the lug nut becomes loose from not being properly tightened, it may fall off, allowing the other lug nuts to become loose, possibly resulting in a wheel separation, and increasing the risk of a crash."

The problem was traced to an assembly process error that occurred between March 7, 2014 and March 10, 2014, Nissan told federal safety regulators. No other Nissan or Infiniti models are affected.

"No accidents or injuries have been reported to Nissan related to this issue," wrote Steve Yaeger, a Nissan spokesman, in response to an Edmunds query.

Nissan dealers will tighten any loose lug nuts. The recall is expected to begin by the end of June. Owners can contact Nissan at 1-800-647-7261.

Edmunds says: The recall will begin shortly, but if you have any concerns in the meantime, it's best to get in touch with your dealer.
