NISSAN distributors in Malaysia, Edaran Tan Chong Sdn Bhd has announced details of a campaign to service affected owners of a recall to fix defective Takata airbags and back door stays.
TAKATA AIRBAGS INFLATOR
After investigation, approximately 110,945 units of Nissan vehicles, including those in a previous recall campaign are involved in the Takata Airbags Inflator issue.
The models affected are:
NAVARA D40 (CBU & CKD) 2007–2014 — 12,634
LATIO C11 (CKD) June 2007–October 2014 — 10,763
GRAND LIVINA L10 (CKD) July 2007–October 2013 — 69,965
X-GEAR L10 (CKD) November 2010-October 2013– 4,874
Takata Front Passenger Airbag Inflator:
X-TRAIL T30 (CKD)
TEANA J31 (CBU) August 2004–September 2004 — 2
LIBERTY M12 (CBU) 2003 — 17
This Takata recall exercise does not affect the Nissan Teana (L33) , New Nissan X-Trail (T32) and the All-New Nissan NP300 Navara which was launched in June 2014, January 2015 and November 2015 respectively, as well as all other current selling Nissan models.
BACK DOOR STAY
ETCM and TCEAS have also been notified by Nissan Motor Co. Ltd concerning the Back Door Stay field action with approximately 22,173 units of Nissan vehicles affected in Malaysia as stated below:
SERENA S-HYBRID C26 (CBU) September 2012–November 2013 — 4,001
SERENA S-HYBRID C26 (CKD) February 2014–March 2016 — 3,715
X-TRAIL T32 August 2014–December 2015 — 8,756
NV200 M20 September 2011–February 2016 — 5,701
The paint coating applied to the back door stay does not comply with design requirements for anti-rust treatment. As a result, the cylinder tube of the door stay may gradually corrode causing the gas in the cylinder to leak out. Over an extended period of time, the back door stay may weaken thus disabling the hold-up function of the back door. Replacement of defective back door stay will be conducted once improved parts are available in September 2016.
All Nissan customers of the affected Nissan vehicles will be notified directly and by letter through TCEAS. Customers receiving this letter are advised to call the nearest TCEAS outlet for an appointment.
Customers may also call the Nissan Customer Care Centre at the Toll-Free line: 1800-88-3838 for further clarification or visit www.nissan.com.my (click on ‘Owners’ tab followed by ‘Recall Campaign’) to find out if their Nissan vehicle is involved in this recall campaign.
All labour and replacement parts for these service campaigns will be at no cost to owners.
