Nissan will recall more than 200,000 2020 model Frontier and Titan pickups through 2023 due to a defect that can cause trucks to roll over when parked. In documents filed with NHTSAThe automaker said the problem was a “unconnected parking pedal” on trucks from the 2020 to 2023 model years, which have a nine-speed automatic transmission.
Nissan spotted the problem at its Canton, Mississippi plant, and it has been confirmed through testing by Jatco, the maker of the nine-speed transmission. The supplier said “inadequate lifting force of the parking legs, due to friction” was believed to be the problem, according to the NHTSA filing.
