The Japanese manufacturer reports the Output Shaft Speed Sensor in affected vehicles could fail intermittently, which could result in an unintended downshift into first gear.
If the condition occurs while the vehicle is in use, it could cause an abrupt reduction in wheel speed, causing the rear tyres to slide or lock up until the vehicle's speed slows.
This may lead to a loss of vehicle control, posing a hazard risk to drivers and other road users.
