2014 Nissan Frontier Recalled for Seatbelt Anchor Bolt Problem


Just the Facts:
  • Nissan North America is recalling 1,319 2014 Nissan Frontier Crew Cab pickup trucks because of a seatbelt anchor bolt problem.
  • The remedy for the recall is still under development.
  • No other Nissan vehicles are affected.

WASHINGTON Nissan North America is recalling 1,319 2014 Nissan Frontier Crew Cab pickup trucks because of a seatbelt anchor bolt problem, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

"The affected vehicles were manufactured with an out-of-specification anchor nut installed on the weld nut plate where the rear seatbelt anchor is attached," said NHTSA in its summary of the problem. "The seatbelt anchor bolt may not be attached as designed. That increases the risk of injury in the event of a vehicle crash."

Nissan spokesman Steve Yaeger told Edmunds there are no injuries, crashes or fatalities linked to the recall.

The remedy for the recall is still under development.

No other Nissan vehicles are affected because the problem is "the result of an isolated assembly process error unique to the Frontier Crew Cab model that has since been corrected," the automaker told federal safety regulators.

The affected trucks were built from June 11, 2014 to June 26, 2014.

No date has been set for the recall. Owners can contact Nissan at 1-800-647-7261.

Edmunds says: Since the fix and the timing for this recall are still up in the air, it's best to contact your dealer if you have an immediate concern.
