Recall Alert: 2013 Nissan Titan, NV Commercial Van

2013-nissan-titan
Nissan is recalling 2,180 model-year 2013 versions of the Titan pickup truck and NV commercial van due to a problem with the transmission shift lever, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

The affected vehicles were manufactured from Jan. 22 through Feb. 20, 2013 (check your vehicle's build date on a sticker on the driver-side doorjamb) and have faulty steering column-mounted transmission levers. In these vehicles, chemicals from the manufacturing process may cause the brake shift interlock device to malfunction, allowing the shift lever to be put into Park without depressing the brake pedal. This could lead to an accident.

This is the second recall in two weeks for Nissan's NV commercial van. 

Nissan will start notifying owners on Friday, and dealers will inspect and replace the affected parts for free. Owners can call Nissan at 800-647-7261 or NHTSA's vehicle safety hotline at 888-327-4236 for more info.

Nissan Attempted to Lure Manning to Tennessee

IMG_5322
It looks like Peyton Manning will probably go to Denver to play for the Broncos despite Nissan's attempts to return the NFL quarterback to his Tennessee roots. The automaker offered to "make him a Titan" to make playing for the Tennessee Titans a bit more appealing.

The Titans were on Manning's short list of NFL teams, though Nissan says it will build him a 2012 Titan Pro-4X pickup truck regardless of whether the quarterback signed with the team.

Tennessee was a popular pick for most football analysts since Manning has a history there: Before going to the NFL, he played for the University of Tennessee. Nissan, whose North American operations are based in Nashville suburb Franklin, Tenn., sent Manning an open letter outlining the offer.

Read the letter after the jump.
