Nissan Investigates Driveshaft Defects

After Toyota, another Japanese car manufacturer seems to have some problems in terms of recalls, as Nissan confirmed that it is investigating potential driveshaft problems in North America, as a Result of Dana supplied parts. If the problem is real, the recall would only involve “a small number” of production SUVs and trucks of the Nissan and Infiniti brands.

“Nissan/Infiniti vehicles built with one of these yokes will not experience a loss of control or present a safety risk even in the unlikely event the part should fail,”
a spokesperson promptly told TheDetroitBureau.com.

As component supplier Dana was the one telling Toyota of a cracking defect that occurred during the manufacturing process, the wheels were set in motion and the carmaker immediately recalled 2010 model Tacoma trucks.

“We are investigating the situation to determine the best course of action to address the issue. Nissan is committed to a high level of customer service and satisfaction and is working to promptly address this issue,” the official spokesperson said.

Recently, Toyota and Honda were affected by important recalls. Toyota was forced to recall more that 8 million cars for a faulty accelerator pedal, nearly 500,000 Prius models for some breaking problems, while Honda had to recall 800,000 cars to fix the electric window button. In this climate, where everybody is scared and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has been criticized for its inaction in several matters that ultimately resulted in serious injuries and deaths, there is a big chance Nissan will recall too.
