Avatar photo

Nissan North America, Inc. (Nissan) is recalling certain 2014-2020 Rogue and 2017-2022 Rogue Sport vehicles equipped with a jackknife style ignition key. For this Nissan Rogue recall, the jackknife key may collapse into a folded position while driving.

Driver contact with a key in the collapsed position could inadvertently shut off the vehicle while driving, increasing the risk of a crash.

Owners are advised not to attach any accessories to their key and only use the key in the unfolded orientation until the remedy is available. Interim notification letters notifying owners of the safety risk are expected to be mailed March 17, 2023. A second letter will be mailed once the remedy is available. Once the remedy is available, dealers will insert a spacer into the key slot of the jackknife key, free of charge. Owners may contact Nissan’s customer service at 1-800-867-7669. Nissan’s number for this recall is R22C5.

We have previously reported on a recall of nearly 700,000 Nissan Rogue vehicles from the 2014-2016 model year due to corrosion in the electrical connector that can result in power window/seat failure, all-wheel-drive warning light illumination, battery drainage, and electrical connector damage that increases the risk of a fire. The 2017 Nissan Rogue has been recalled for harness connector corrosion. If you own a Nissan Rogue or Rogue Sport, be sure to consult the NHTSA recalls portion of the website and type in the specific VIN of your SUV to see if this current recall applies to your vehicle.

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.nhtsa.gov.
