The Associated Press is reporting that Nissan will recall 48,700 trucks and SUVs for a suspension problem that could lead to an unforgiving ride. The recall, which could officially begin as early as this week, involves the 2010 Nissan Titan, Pathfinder, Armada and Xterra, along with the Infiniti QX56. The recall is related to a suspension control link that may not have been welded properly. If the weld is insufficient, the bushing collar could crack, leading to the kind of ride that bruises kidneys and rattles fillings.

Nissan spokesman Colin Price reported to the AP that the company is working with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration to get the recall processed as quickly as possible. Once a recall is officially announced, Nissan will provide a fix at no cost to the customer. No accidents have been reported as a result of this potential issue.

      How many of these were sold anyways? Even combined, not much at all.

        Probably 150,000 combined over the last year.

      Gotta love the headline "Nissan to recall 48k trucks, SUVs over potential suspension issue". The way it's worded it makes it sound like any attempt to have sensible suspension is going to be removed by the recall.

      Are they sure? Thought a crappy ride was normal for an Infiniti.

        I think it has to do with the whole Toyota thing. After the evidence that they had problems for years and the Dept. of Transportation did nothing about it for years, now every manufacturer with any problem has to do a recall. Also, nobody is gonna get called out because everyone has a problem with one of their cars so the makers are doing a recall now.

        For eight years everything associated with the executive branch of the government has been incompetent and ineffective. Now they are starting to do their jobs again.
