How to Easily Make a Nissan Recall Claim

When you purchase an automobile, you trust that every component is built to exact standards to ensure your safety and the proper function of the vehicle. Sometimes, after cars have been sold, the manufacturer or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) discovers a defect that could create a safety hazard. In these cases, the vehicles are recalled and the owner is offered a refund, repair, or replacement. In 2021, there have been several Nissan recalls, including:

  • 2017-2019 Rogue Hybrid
  • 2014-2015 Pathfinder Hybrid
  • 2015-2016 Murano Hybrid
  • 2014-2017 INFINITI QX60 Hybrid
  • 2022 Pathfinder
  • 2021 Rogue Sport
  • 2020-2021 Titan
  • And others

As a Nissan owner, you should be contacted directly about concerning your automobile. If you did not receive a word or if you're wondering about which Nissan cars are being recalled, you will have to find out on your own.

Recalls may be issued for any type of product, including dog food, sunscreen, chicken, and other food products like Hot Pockets, pharmaceuticals like Metformin, exercise equipment like Peloton, sunscreens like Neutrogena, and medical equipment like CPAP machines. These recalls are determined by the product manufacturer and/or the various organizations that oversee these industries, including the Food and Drug Administration and the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission.

In all cases, it's important to stop using the product and seek a refund or replacement. It can be confusing and time-consuming to figure out how to get your refund, but DoNotPay can simplify the process for you.

What Do I Do Next?

The manufacturer is required to offer a refund, repair, or replacement. In some cases, if repairs are not possible, they may even have to buy the vehicle back from you. You'll need to provide some information about your car:

  • Make and model
  • The dealership where you purchased the vehicle
  • Purchase price
  • Date of purchase

You may also want to provide supporting evidence, including pictures or accident reports. This will help you build a strong case to ensure you receive your refund or free repair or replacement. After that, you'll make an appointment with your dealership. It's a time-consuming process.

  1. You have to research to determine if your vehicle has been recalled and what to do next.
  2. You have to gather information about your car.
  3. Replacement parts may be backordered or temporarily unavailable.
