Nissan Recalls Frontier and NV For Seat Belt Problems
Loose bolts could cause seat belts to fail in the Nissan Frontier Crew Cab and NV passenger van.

— Nissan is recalling its 2014 NV passenger vans and Frontier Crew Cab trucks because of seat belt problems, one of which Nissan hasn't yet figured out how to fix.

2014 Frontier Crew Cab

Over 1,300 model year 2014 Frontier Crew Cab trucks have seat belts that might not hold a passenger in a crash. Nissan blames the problem on a seat belt anchor bolt that might not be properly attached. The bolt is out of place because an anchor nut on the weld nut plate is out of specification, but only on trucks manufactured between June 11, 2014 and June 26, 2014.

In the event of a crash, the seat will stay in place but the occupant slamming against the seat belt could cause the seat belt anchor to detach.

Nissan is trying to find a method to fix the trucks, so until then the automaker doesn't know when the recall will begin.

2014 Nissan NV

More seat belt issues have caused Nissan to recall 594 model year 2014 NV passenger vans equipped with specific seat belt retractors made by a company called Faurecia Automotive Systems.

Nissan says the bolts on the retractors might be loose or missing on the 2nd, 3rd and 4th row removable seats. Loose seat belt retractor bolts can mean the seat belts might not hold in the event of a crash.

The Nissan NV recall should begin in September 2014. Nissan dealers will tighten any loose bolts and replace any that are missing.
