WASHINGTON — Nissan North America is recalling 6,595 2015 Nissan Rogue, Sentra and Versa Note vehicles because the driver-side front and rear doors may not fully latch, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
The automaker issued a stop-sale order on the affected vehicles July 17 until they can be fixed.
"A door that does not fully latch may result in the door opening while the car is moving," NHTSA said in its recall summary. "The distraction may increase the risk of a crash and/or a vehicle occupant may fall out of the vehicle if they are not wearing a seatbelt, increasing their risk of injury."
There are no injuries or fatalities linked to the recall, according to a Nissan document filed with federal safety regulators.
The affected Rogue SUVs were built from June 9, 2015, to June 10, 2015. The affected Sentra sedans and Versa Note hatchbacks were built from June 5, 2015, to June 13, 2015.
Nissan dealers will inspect the date, lot number and cavity code on the left front-and-rear door latches and replace them, as necessary. The recall is expected to begin by mid-September. Owners can contact Nissan customer service at 1-800-647-7261.
Edmunds says: Owners of these cars should stay in touch with their dealers. Nissan told NHTSA that rental vehicles will be available under the campaign until parts arrive.
