Nissan Has Recalled 1994 D21 Light Duty Pickups
Nissan Has Recalled 1994 D21 Light
Duty Pickups because the seat belt may only partially engage.
Number of Units Affected: 15000
Manufactured: 11/1993 - 05/1994
VEHICLE DESCRIPTION: LIGHT DUTY PICKUPS. THE LATCH PLATE USED IN THE SEAT
BELT BUCKLE WAS NOT MANUFACTURED ACCORDING TO DESIGN DIMENSIONS. IF THE SEAT
BELT TONGUE IS INSERTED SLOWLY AT AN ANGLE INTO THE BUCKLE, THERE IS A
POSSIBILITY OF PARTIAL ENGAGEMENT.
THIS CONDITION CAN CAUSE THE SEAT BELT TONGUE TO COME OUT OF THE BUCKLE IN
THE EVENT OF A COLLISION OR HARD BRAKING OF THE VEHICLE INCREASING THE RISK
OF PERSONAL INJURY TO AN OCCUPANT OF THE SEAT.
DEALERS WILL INSPECT THE BUCKLE AND, IF NECESSARY, REPLACE THE BUCKLE
ASSEMBLY WITH A NEW BUCKLE. OWNER NOTIFICATION IS EXPECTED TO BEGIN DURING
MAY 2002. OWNERS WHO TAKE THEIR VEHICLES TO AN AUTHORIZED DEALER ON AN
AGREED UPON SERVICE DATE AND DO NOT RECEIVE THE FREE REMEDY WITHIN A
REASONABLE TIME SHOULD CONTACT NISSAN AT 1-800-647-7261.
NHTSA CAMPAIGN ID Number: 02V125000.
