Nissan is recalling certain 2016 and 2017 Nissan Titan Crew Cab and Titan XD Crew Cab trucks due to a rear seatbelt defect.
NHTSA Campaign Number 17V26800 says:
Nissan North America, Inc. (Nissan) is recalling certain 2016-2017 Nissan Titan Crew Cab and Titan XD Crew Cab vehicles. In the event of a crash, the rear seatbelt assembly may not adequately protect the occupant’s head, allowing it to contact the D-ring bolt trim cap. As such, these vehicles fail to conform to Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 201, “Occupant Protection in Interior Impact.”
Nissan will notify owners, and dealers will install energy absorbing material to the C-Pillar
Finishers and replace the Seatbelt Bolt and Bolt Cap, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin September 26, 2017. Owners may contact Nissan customer service at 1-800-647-7261.
Owners can contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153) or go to www.safercar.gov.
