An Associated Press news report states that Nissan will recall 48,700 truck-based SUV models for a suspension problem that could lead to a harsh ride. The recall, which is slated to begin by next week, includes the 2010 model-years of the Nissan Titan pickup, Pathfinder, Armada and Xterra, as well as the Armada-based Infiniti QX56.
The recall is related to a suspension control link that may not have been welded properly. If the weld is insufficient, the bushing collar could crack, leading to hard ride quality.
Once a recall is officially announced by the U.S. NHTSA safety agency, Nissan will provide a free fix to customers. No accidents have been reported as a result of this problem. Owners in the UAE, Saudi Arabia and other GCC countries will be affected, as all these models come here from the United States.
