The Problem: There are actually two separate recalls for the 2014 Nissan Versa Note. The first is a manufacturing defect in the rear seat latch bolts, meaning that the rear seats may not perform as designed in a crash. The other is a possible missing or incorrectly installed set of bolts on the lower body sill, which could negatively impact the vehicle’s integrity in a rear impact.

The Fix: For the first recall, Nissan dealers will replace the rear seat latch bolts for free, and for the second, dealers will install and/or tighten lower body sill bolts, also free of charge. Both recalls will begin August 12.

Number of Vehicles Potentially Affected: Rear seat bolts: 7,782 2014 Nissan Versa Note models manufactured between April 23 and July 5, 2013; Lower body bolts: 2014 Nissan Versa Note models 7,707 manufactured between April 23 and July 3, 2013.

2004-2011 Toyota Tacoma

The Problem: In Toyota Tacoma Access Cab vehicles, closing the access door repeatedly can cause loosening of screws that attach the seatbelt pre-tensioner to the seatbelt retractor, meaning that the retractor cover could detach from the retractor itself which compromises the performance of the seatbelt pre-tensioner and retractor.

The Fix: Dealers will install new screws in addition to a new retractor cover and a sealant to correct the defect.

Number of Vehicles Potentially Affected: 342,000 Toyota Tacoma Access Cab vehicles produced between 2004 and 2011.

2014 Chevrolet Suburban, Chevrolet Tahoe, GMC Yukon, GMC Yukon XL

The Problem: The rear brake caliper bolts may not be fully tightened, which could create an abnormal noise while braking or affect the braking capability of these models.

The Fix: Dealers will inspect the bolts and replace both bolts if they are not tightened correctly for no charge.

Number of Vehicles Potentially Affected: Ten 2014 GM Full-Size SUVs, including four Chevrolet Suburbans, three Chevrolet Tahoes, two GMC Yukons, and one GMC Yukon XL.
