WASHINGTON — Nissan North America is recalling 194 2015 Nissan Armada SUVs because of a powertrain problem that could lead to a rollaway risk, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. A stop-sale order is in effect until the vehicles are repaired.
"Due to interference between the parking rod and the transmission housing, the parking pawl may not fully engage," said NHTSA in its recall summary. "This condition may allow the vehicle to move with the shifter in the 'Park' position, increasing the risk of a vehicle crash."
Nissan spokesman Steve Yaeger told Edmunds there are no reports of accidents or injuries linked to the recall.
The affected Armadas were built from September 15, 2014 to October 14, 2014.
Four of the recalled vehicles may have received defective service parts. Those owners will be contacted by Nissan as well.
Nissan dealers will inspect the casting date stamp on the transmission housing and replace the affected transmissions. The recall will begin in late January. Owners can contact Nissan customer service at 1-800-647-7261.
Edmunds says: This recall does not begin for several weeks. If you own one of these vehicles and have an immediate concern, it's best to contact your dealer.
