So I got my first recall in the mail today. I guess the upper mounts for the rear seat belts don't meet the don't meet all the safety standards that they should. I guess I'll eventually take it in to get the new ones put in, I don't have passengers in my back seat too often and when I do, they are usually co-workers that I don't like much anyway :twisted: Did anyone else get this recall?

I haven't received any recalls from Nissan yet but I sure do get a lot of surveys. LOL they send them out 1 a week I think.
By the way if you really don't like your co-workers just don't have the seats fixed. hehe

went to look at my new truck yesterday before taking delivery and they were doing the the recall when i got there,something to do with the top mount not being big enough possibly causing head injuring during awreck your head actually having to impact the upper mount. nothing to do with the belts not working properly.

never said the belts didn't work properly

Defect Summary:
Nissan has determined that some 2004 model year Nissan Titan King Cab and Crew Cab vehicles fail to comply with Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard 201 – Occupant Protection in Interior Impact. FMVSS 201 specifies certain requirements for components othe upper interior of vehicles such as roof rails and pillars to assure they afford appropriate protection in the event an occupant’s head strikes the component in a crash. Nissan has determined that an area on the rear pillar where the rear seat belt upper anchor is attached may not be sufficiently energy absorbent. This could result in an increased risk of injury if the area is struck in some types of crashes. All other requirements under FMVSS 201 and other standards are met.
Remedy:
To correct this condition, Nissan is conducting a Voluntary Safety Recall Campaign to replace the outboard rear seat belt assemblies with new ones, which have a larger, more energy-absorbent upper D-ring cover and D-ring. This will enable the vehicle to meet the FMVSS 201 standard at this location.

Yea, I just got my recall today. Looks like my titan will get to see some time in the service lot so they can fix it. There were two recalls that I seen and I only got one of them. Wonder how many more will pop up in the future.

First model year, new factory, new workers, etc., bound to be some quirks to be worked out. I don't think it is anything to worry about, good product, good mfg standing behind it!
