There are 517,472 Rogue and 194,986 Rogue Sport models affected by the issue in the U.S. The problem affects only the S level of the Rogue and Rogue Sport SUVs. As Nissan states. No other Nissan models are affected.
Although Nissan says no injuries have been reported, the recall is a precaution to make sure its customers are safe, because of it the manufacturer announced to customers as an advice to use the key in the non-folding position and not to attach anything to Nissan key until the necessary modification can be done.
What customers can expect from Nissan?
Dealers will install a spacer into the key slot of owners’ key fobs once Nissan has given them the patch so that the key can no longer collapse. Dealers are prohibited from selling, leasing, trading, renting, or loaning any impacted automobiles in their inventory as a result of Nissan’s “stop sale” order until the patch has been implemented.
