Nissan Recalls Certain 2000-2001 Infiniti QX4 Models

Detroit, MI (SafetyAlerts) - The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has published a recall affecting certain 2000 and 2001 model Nissan Infiniti automobiles.  The affected models were manufactured between October 1999 and March 2000.

Certain passenger vehicles may have an ignition lock assembly with improperly seated key cylinder cap connector pins. Vibration can cause the connecting pins to loosen and/or fall out, allowing the key cylinder cap to disengage from the key cylinder. If this occurs, the steering wheel lock rod can move and lock the steering wheel.

This recall affects 9,200 automobiles.

Dealers will inspect the ignition lock assembly and assemblies with loose or missing end cap connector pins will be replaced. A ring clip will be installed on all others to prevent loosening of the pins.

The manufacturer has reported that owner notification began Dec. 22, 2000. Owners who do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact Nissan at 1-800-647-7261.
