2020 Nissan Juke recalled for incorrectly-labelled jack

Nissan Australia has issued a recall of 299 examples of its 2020 Nissan Juke, due to incorrectly-labelled jacks. The recall notice, lodged with the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC), says the jacks – which are used to lift the vehicle off the ground to change tyres – do not comply with Australian safety standards. Nissan says the omission of a correct instruction label could potentially cause an accident if a vehicle is not jacked correctly by the operator.
