In the event of a crash, the tether anchorage could separate from the vehicle seat increasing the risk of injury to an occupant in a child seat that uses the tether anchor.

Child Seat — Vehicle Tether Anchor

Date Announced
AUG 12, 2010
Vehicles Affected
Nissan Recall #
NHTSA Campaign #
Nissan is recalling certain model year 2010 Nissan Frontier king cab vehicles manufactured from June 10, 2010 through June 26, 2010. These vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard no. 225, "child restraint anchorage systems." The weld between the tether anchor and the seat gusset bracket is out-of-specification. As a result, and based on Nissan's engineering judgment, the tether anchor could separate from the seat when tested under the conditions required by the standard.
The seat gusset containing the tether anchorage will be replaced with a new one free of charge. The safety recall began on August 30, 2010. Owners may contact Nissan at 1-800-647-7261.
