Nissan North America has announced a recall of the 2012 Nissan Titan. The recall stems from improper labeling that could cause owners to overload the vehicle.
According to a bulletin from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, some Nissan Titans were sold with tire placards that incorrectly list the vehicle's seating capacity. As a result, owners might unknowingly overload the truck, which could ultimately result in a crash.
The recall doesn't include all 2012 Titans, though -- only those that came with the "sports appearance" package, and only those manufactured between June 10, 2011 and July 22, 2011. All told, some 918 vehicles are affected.
Nissan says that it plans to send out notices of the recall by May 14. Nissan will either supply owners with a new tire placard (and instructions on how to affix it), or owners can take their vehicles to Nissan dealers, who will apply the label for them.
If you have questions in the meantime, we encourage you to contact Nissan at 615-725-1000, or ring NHTSA at 888-327-4236 and ask about recall campaign #12V102000.
