Ignition Switch may Turn Off

If the vehicle stalls, it can increase the risk of a crash.



Nissan North America, Inc. (Nissan) is recalling certain 2017 Nissan NV200, Sentra, NV3500 Van, NV3500 Bus, NV200 Taxi, NV1500, NV2500 Van, Chevrolet City Express, 2017-2018 Frontier, Versa Note, and Versa Sedan vehicles that have a mechanical (physical) key ignition system. In these models, over time, the weight on the key ring and road conditions or some other jarring event may cause the ignition switch to move out of the run position to the accessory position, turning off the engine.



Nissan will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the production information on the ignition switch, and replace it as necessary, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin October 19, 2018. Owners may contact Nissan customer service at 1-800-867-7669.



Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.

One thought on “Ignition Switch may Turn Off – 2017-2018 Nissan

  1. After talking to Nissian Headquarters, they were very unhelpful and rude. I have a recall on a 2017 Nissian Versa and I have to pay for a rental car until they have fixed the key ignition. Nissian Office said I might get refuned but I have submit paper work and wait until who knows when to get refuned if that happens. This is bad customer service. I will never buy another Nissan again.
