Nissan is recalling approximately 5,895 model-year 2022 Pathfinder SUVs due to issues with the seat assemblies. The second-row seat back frames may have insufficient welds that could separate and fail to adequately restrain occupants during a crash, increasing the risk of injury.

Nissan will begin notifying owners on Nov. 19. Owners can call the automaker at 800-867-7669 or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle safety hotline at 888-327-4236 to learn more.

To resolve the issue, dealers will inspect and replace the seat assemblies, as necessary.

Vehicle manufacturers are legally required to repair any recalled issues or replace the defective part for free under the Highway Safety Act of 1970. If the dealership refuses to fix the problem or attempts to charge you for the repair, contact the manufacturer immediately.
