Nissan North America Inc. has announced it will recall some 300,000 vehicles due to a design defect that could catch a driver’s shoe and possibly hinder their ability to apply the brakes.
The auto manufacturer was tipped off to the issue after an injury accident involving a car owner, but there are no reported deaths due to this problem. The problem stems from the console’s trim panel that has an edge that may cause a shoe to get caught up when a motorist attempts to apply the brakes.
The car maker filed a report with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and has notified car owners to warn them and ask that they return the vehicle to their dealer to get the panel trimmed at no cost.
The vehicles subject to the recall are in the model years 2012 to 2015 that were manufactured from June 9, 2011 to March 11, 2015. There are the 4-door Versa sedans made by Nissan.
Also, Versa Note hatchback cars in the model years 2014 and 2015 which were manufactured between April 23, 2013 and March 11, 2015.
If you are the owner of a Nissan Versa or any other vehicle under warranty that you believe might qualify as a California lemon, contact Johnson Attorneys Group at 800-235-6801 for a free consultation to see if you have a potential claim.
