Nissan to recall 480,000 trucks, SUVs for suspension

ASSOCIATED PRESS

JACKSON, Miss. — Nissan Motor Co. is planning to recall 48,700 trucks and SUVs for problems with a suspension part that could lead to a rough ride.

Spokesman Colin Price says the company is working on details with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and expects the recall to begin this week.

It will cover some, but not all, 2010 Nissan Armadas, Frontiers, Titans, Pathfinders and Xterras and Infiniti QX56 models.

The Armada, Titan and Infiniti QX56 are produced at the company's Canton plant. The Frontier, Pathfinder and Xterra are produced at its Smyrna, Tenn., plant.

The problem centers on a lower suspension control link, which may not have been welded properly. It could cause the bushing collar to crack, leading to a rough and noisy ride. No accidents have been reported.
