Recall Up Date: 2011 Nissan Juke


Nissan will launch a recall campaign for the quirky Juke crossover in order to address door locks that could freeze in cold weather, and engine boost-pressure sensors that could come loose.

The Problem: In cold weather, the locking mechanism for the Juke’s front doors can freeze, making it difficult to close the doors, or open them from the outside. At the same time, Nissan says that a boost-pressure sensor on turbocharged engines could come loose. If so, the sensor would provide incorrect readings and could cause the check engine light to illuminate.

The Fix: Nissan says the issues don’t pose safety concerns, and can easily be corrected at a dealership.

Number of Vehicles Potentially Affected: Nissan says the freezing door issues affects vehicles in Japan, North American, and colder countries in Europe. The turbocharger issue affects vehicles in Asia, Europe, North America, Latin America, South America, and Africa. Reuters reports that about 118,000 Jukes will be recalled globally. That means almost every Juke sold is affected — 41,497 examples of the car have been sold in the U.S. so far, and more than 51,000 copies have been sold in Europe.
