Nissan is recalling 4,038 sport-utility vehicles and pickups that might have left the factory without properly tightened fasteners.

The recall only pertains to 2010 Nissan Pathfinder, Xterra, and Frontier models manufactured within a rather narrow period: between February 22 and March 13, 2010.

In affected vehicles, two sets of fasteners—those securing the front passenger airbag module, and those securing the steering shaft positioning bracket—haven't been properly tightened down. If the fasteners fall out completely, the issue could potentially increase the risk of a crash or affect the trajectory of the airbags, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) recall summary.

Dealers will inspect these vehicles—which are likely mostly in transit or on dealer lots—looking for missing or loose fasteners and replace and retorque them where necessary.

All three models are assembled by Nissan's Smyrna, Tennessee plant.

Owners are encouraged to contact Nissan at 800-647-7261.
