2008 Nissan Rogue STEERING:GEAR BOX:SHAFT PITMAN NHTSA Campaign #09V411000
Summary: Nissan is recalling certain model year 2008-2009 Rogue vehicles. A screw in the steering gear housing cover may loosen over time and could fall out. As it loosens, the steering response of the vehicle may be compromised but the driver will retain steering control.
Consequence: The screw may eventually come out of the steering gear cover. If large steering inputs are made with the cover screw missing the pinion shaft may come out of the steering gear resulting in a complete loss of steering control and increasing the risk of a crash.
Actions: Dealers will inspect whether the steering gear cover screw is loose and will be retightened to the proper specification. Dealers will also install a cover plate to prevent the screw from possibly coming out of the steering gear. This service will be performed free of charge. The recall is expected to begin during November 2009. Owners may contact Nissan at 1-800-647-7261.

2008 Nissan Rogue TIRES:PRESSURE MONITORING AND REGULATING SYSTEMS NHTSA Campaign #09V393000
Summary: Nissan is recalling certain model year 2008-2010 vehicles originally sold in or currently registered in the states of Connecticut, Delaware, Iowa, Illinois, Indiana, Massachusetts, Maine, Maryland, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, Washington D.C., West Virginia and Wisconsin. The material in the nut used to secure the sensor-transmitter of the tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS) may corrode and potentially crack in areas with heavy concentrations of road salt. If this occurs, the nut may come out of the sensor-transmitter and the TPMS lamp will illuminate.
Consequence: If the TPMS lamp is disregarded and the vehicle continues to be driven in this condition, the tire will quickly lose air pressure at a consistent rate resulting in a flat tire increasing the risk of a crash.
Actions: The dealer will replace the TPMS nut with a new, more robust nut. This service will be performed free of charge. The recall is expected to begin on or before November 9, 2009. Owners may contact Nissan at 1-800-647-7261 and infiniti at 1-800-662-6200. For detailed information & supporting documents, see the official NHTSA page concerning recall #09V393000 »

Summary: Nissan is recalling 204,361 MY 2007-2008 Altima, Altima hybrid, 350Z, 350Z roadster, MY 2008 Altima coupe, Rogue, MY 2009 murano, and infiniti MY 2007-2008 G35 sedan, MY 2008 G37 coupe and EX35 passenger vehicles equipped with Continental automotive systems' occupant classification system (OCS) control units. A varistor in the OCS control unit located in the passenger seat cushion may have been manufactured out of specification.

Consequence: This could result in the passenger air bag being suppressed which could fail to provide adequate protection in the event of a crash.
Actions: Dealers will test the signal between the OCS and acu systems using a special tool to check that it is functioning as designed. If necessary, the seat cushion (containing OCS hardware) will be replaced with a new one manufactured to specification. The recall began on November 4, 2008.
