Nissan recalls 15K Versa Notes
Incorrectly torqued body sill bolts and erroneously manufactured rear seat bolts are behind Nissan of North America's recall of more than 15,000 Versa Note vehicles. In one recall, 7,707 Notes made between April 23 and July 3 of this year may have lower body sill bolts that were incorrectly torqued. That could affect the car's integrity in the event of a rear impact collision. As for the other recall, the rear seats in 7,782 Versa Notes built from April 23 to July 5 may have latch bolts may have been manufactured incorrectly, reducing their strength. In the event of a traffic collision, the rear seats may not perform as designed if those bolts break. Increased risk of injury could result if each scenario comes to light. Both recalls are to being Aug. 12. Vehicle owners are being notified. Dealers will make the repairs for free, if necessary. For information, call Nissan at 1-800-647-7261.
