Nissan Australia has issued a recall notice for D23 Navara and R52 Pathfinder models with factory-fitted nudge bars.
According to the company, insufficient bolt torque could cause the roll hoop to rattle or, in the worst-case scenario, detach from the vehicle while driving. This poses a risk to both vehicle occupants and other road users.
The recall affects the nudge bar on 6963 Navaras and 965 Pathfinders, for a total of 7928 vehicles.
Owners of the affected cars will be contacted by Nissan, and asked to contact their nearest dealership for a fix.
Concerned owners can contact Nissan Customer Service on 1800 035 035 for more information.
