Recall Alert: 2012-13 Nissan NV Commercial Vans

2012NissanNVVan

Nissan is recalling 18,880 model-year 2012 and 2013 NV commercial vans due to a problem with the transmission lever, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

Affected vehicles were manufactured from Dec. 20, 2010, through Jan. 4, 2013, and are equipped with steering-column-mounted transmission shift levers. The transmission lever gear selector plate lock clip may have been installed incorrectly, and normal road vibration could make the gear position indicator not match the gear-shift lever position. If this happens, the gear indicator may falsely display that the vehicle is in park, allowing it to roll away unexpectedly and increasing the risk of a crash or injury.

Nissan will begin notifying owners April 8, and dealers will correct the installation of the transmission lever gear selector plate lock clip for free. Owners may call Nissan at 800-647-7261, or NHTSA's vehicle safety hotline at 888-327-4236 or go to www.safercar.gov.
