Default Dana Driveshafts Investigated By Nissan



Nissan and Infiniti 2010 model trucks and SUVs use the part
Quote:
Nissan confirms that it is looking into potential driveshaft yoke problems in North America, the result of Dana supplied parts.

A potential recall would involve a “small number” of current production four-wheel-drive trucks and SUVs at both the Nissan and Infiniti brands.

“Nissan/Infiniti vehicles built with one of these yokes will not experience a loss of control or present a safety risk even in the unlikely event the part should fail,” a spokesperson promptly told TheDetroitBureau.com.
Toyota immediately recalled 2010 model Tacoma trucks that use similar parts after being informed last Thursday by component supplier Dana of a cracking defect that occurred during manufacturing.

In the current recall environment, dominated by Toyota actions, and where the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has been criticized for its inaction in several matters that ultimately resulted in serious injuries and deaths, I will bet that Nissan recalls the trucks.

Nissan has five business days to so, giving Nissan until the middle of next week. Nissan would not name the vehicles involved, but sources close to the matter who are not authorized to speak about it say Titan and Frontier models are involved in the investigation.

“We are investigating the situation to determine the best course of action to address the issue. Nissan is committed to a high level of customer service and satisfaction and is working to promptly address this issue,” the official spokesperson said.

It took them this long to figure it out??? They've had nothing but problems with the Dana rear ends since the first year of the Titan/Armada....

These are front drive shafts, not rear, 1sic.

So, when is Ford going to start investigating? Apparently there are 34000 of these parts out there w/ Toyota having 8000 and Ford & Nissan having the other 26000.
