Nissan North America Incorporated, at the request of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, has issued a voluntary recall for more than 26,000 Armada and Titan vehicles due to a labeling error. The affected vehicles are model year 2012 vehicles manufactured between August 2011 and March 2012. The Armadas and Titans affected by this recall do not comply with the federal safety guideline number 110 for tire selection and rims, due to the omission of rim size from the vehicles’ part 567 certification labels. This oversight may lead to the consumer replacing the wheel with a tire of incorrect size for the factory issued wheel, creating the potential that the tire may operate improperly, increasing the potential that the vehicle will become involved in a collision that could result in injury or death. Nissan will begin informing owners of affected vehicles of the potential safety issue. Vehicles with incorrect labels can be returned to authorized dealerships, where a corrected label will be affixed at no cost. Consumers seeking more information about this recall can contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s Vehicle Safety Hotline and reference NHTSA campaign identification number 12V143000.
