Introduced in 2011, the Nissan Juke turned heads in its debut for the distinctive design of its front end and its signature I-CON command module on the lower dashboard. However, the Juke also drew some unwanted attention for a series of safety recalls. These recalls, which cover all production models of the Nissan Juke sold across the globe, concern defects in the vehicle\'s construction that can severely affect the SUV\'s performance and pose a risk to the driver and passenger on the road. If you own a Nissan Juke, be sure to have your SUV checked at your dealer to determine if you are viable for the following recalls:
In December 2011, Nissan issued a voluntary recall for Juke crossovers concerning issues with the front door locks and turbo boost-pressure sensors. The door locks have been reported to freeze, locking it completely from the outside as well as preventing the door from closing securely. The pressure sensors, on the other hand, are prone to coming loose from its mounting, resulting in erroneous readings and the check engine light illumination.
If any of these happens in your Juke, take your vehicle to your local Nissan dealer for an inspection. The dealer should do the appropriate repairs to your SUV\'s locks and sensor free of charge.
Nissan has also issued a recall for Nissan Jukes released for 2011 and 2012 model years over possible fuel leaks through the fuel pressure sensor. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), the sensors may not be tightened properly. This could make the sensor come loose over time due to heat and vibration. It could also cause fuel to leak through the gap and become potential fire hazard. Nissan dealers are instructed to inspect the fuel pressure sensors and replace them free of charge as necessary. In addition, it is also recommended for Nissan Juke owners to check for signs of fuel pressure loss, such as stalling and the check engine light as well as fuel stains that indicate potential leaks. If this happens, take the SUV directly to the dealer for a comprehensive checkup.
Nissan has also issued a voluntary recall in 2014 regarding a fault in the timing chain in Jukes manufactured in 2011 to 2013. In particular, the timing chain has been reported to deteriorate faster than normal, resulting in the warning light coming on in the instrument panel. In a worst-case scenario, the timing chain might actually snap into several pieces and cause sudden engine failure.
If your Juke\'s stock timing chain has started to show signs of wear, take your vehicle to the local dealer to determine if it is covered by the recall. If it is, the dealership will replace the timing chain as well as the chain guides and crank sprocket for free. Although Nissan classifies this issue as a voluntary service campaign rather than an actual recall because it does not pose an immediate safety risk, it is important to address this as soon as possible as failure of the timing belt could still prove disastrous when driving.
