The 2020 Nissan Navara has been recalled due to an issue with the steering knuckle bolts.

“The steering knuckle bolts may not be sufficiently tightened, which can cause the steering knuckle, hub and the bearing assemblies to become detached,” the company says in its recall notice.

“If the front knuckle bolts gradually loosen, vehicle occupants may experience noise and vibration.

“If the vehicle is driven in this condition, the four knuckle bolts may completely loosen, resulting in wheel detachment.”

Naturally, a detaching steering wheel poses a threat of injury or death to vehicle occupants and other road users.

  • A total of 242 vehicles are affected
  • Vehicles were produced between June and July 2020 and sold between 21 July 2020 and 11 December 2020

Nissan is contacting all affected owners.

If you own an affected Navara, you’ll need to contact a Nissan dealer to organise a free inspection and repair. Technicians may need to replace the knuckle, hub and bearing assembly.

If you have any further questions about the recall, you can contact the Nissan Customer Service Centre on 1800 035 035 on weekdays from 8:30am to 6pm AEST.
