Appreciate the heads-up on this.
Interesting that at this point in time, even though they must certainly know, Nissan is not listing/publishing the VIN ranges for effected vehicles. Only a total possible number of effected vehicles and even then they are are not breaking down the numbers by MY.

The article if to believed says its the parking pawl. Every AT I have seen apart had them on the tailshaft. Sometimes there is a rear cover that can come off, sometimes the transmission has to come out and the guts removed. Hope its not that.

Saw this in yesterday's thread Frontier Recalls posted by WestFront. In that thread there is a link to the NHTSA documentation that can be followed to Nissan's acknowledgement of the problem but no information as to actual vehicles, VIN ranges or build dates that might be effected. The link to yahoo!news provided in this thread by Pro4Ray does provide that missing information and completes the picture.
Sounds like this has the potential to get messy for some.

Well, if you have more than 3 days’ driving experience you should know if that rig feels like it’s gonna roll or not when you shift to park…

Are the manual transmission guys laughing yet?? 😆
Nope...just/still prideful! :cool:

It’s weird how there is an 18 day gap that wasn’t affected, between June 25th and July 13th.Did they not produce any during that period? Why else?

Cleary, the normal shift pawl installer guy didn’t know what he was doing and when he took his vacation, the replacement guy did…

Guys and gals who always use their park brake are laughing too.
Drove MT for most of my life so this was normal practice. AT should use it too to alleviate stress on the AT when parked, especially so if not on flat non-rolling surface. Of course most sheeple do not know common sense stuff like this anyways and they wonder why they get really hard clunks when shifting from park. And also wonder why they end up replacing AT more than most MT replace clutches. :) oh yeah that 2007 SE list in signature original clutch at 213k and still did not slip a bit. Got asked many times when I replaced it.

We had a 1994 Suburban whose wipers were intermittent; a recall covered the 1994 year, but not our VIN though we had the exact same issue. GM wanted $50 for replacement circuit board (a bad solder joint) plus $50 installation to fix - why not make $$$ from your mistake !!! I resoldered the broken solder joint.

On the other hand, last Wed. the Nissan dealer replaced the lower steering shaft on my 2004 Frontier under recall. Dealer wouldn't give me back my part, said it had to be shipped back to Nissan (I think the dealer lied about that). That way someone(s) had to process it, costing Nissan more money.....the recall was for possible corrosion, not likely to happen in Arizona....

Problem is the parking brake will not hold the vehicle on a steep hill. It would slow it down, but not stop it. And I'm scheduled to pull a pontoon boat to the boat ramp Friday. Sigh....
