2014 Nissan NV Passenger Vans Recalled To Fix Seatbelt Retractor Bolts


Just the Facts:
  • Nissan North America is recalling 594 2014 Nissan NV Passenger Vans to fix seatbelt retractor bolts.

WASHINGTON Nissan North America is recalling 594 2014 Nissan NV Passenger Vans to fix seatbelt retractor bolts, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

The vans are equipped with seatbelt retractors from Faurecia Automotive Systems.

"The seatbelt retractor bolts on the 2nd, 3rd and 4th row removable seats may not be torqued to proper specification or may be missing," NHTSA said in its summary of the problem. "This can cause the seatbelt anchor to not be secured properly.

"If this occurs, the belt may not properly restrain the seat occupant in the event of a crash, increasing the risk of injury."

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

The affected vans were built from March 14, 2014 to May 15, 2014.

Dealers will inspect the seatbelt retractor bolts for the proper torque and tighten them, if necessary. The recall is expected to begin in September. Owners can contact Nissan at 1-800-647-7261.

Edmunds says: It's time to schedule an appointment with your dealer if you own one of these Nissan vans.
