Nissan Recalls Over 700,000 Rogue

Author: |

Due to a key fob malfunction, Nissan has issued a recall for 712,458 vehicles in the US. The 2017–2022 Nissan Rogue Sport and the 2014–2020 Nissan Rogue are the two models that are involved in the recall. The recall was reported to the NHTSA on February 16, 2023, with the reference number 23V-093.

According to the Japanese automaker, if a vehicle is operated with the key in the collapsed position, the driver may accidentally turn off the SUV if they bump the key, which would increase the likelihood of a collision.

The problem will be communicated to registered owners. Until the fix is ready, they are advised to refrain from attaching any accessories to the key fob and to use the key in its non-folding position.

Owners will begin receiving notice of the recall on March 17, 2023. In the meanwhile, Nissan will advise users to refrain from attaching accessories to the key fob and to use the key in the non-folding orientation until a patch is ready. Nissan is still working on a fix for the problem. Dealers and rental fleets will also be given instructions on how to install a fastener that will stop the key from folding in the key slot.

Dealers will install a spacer into the key slot of the customer's key fob when remedy parts are available; this spacer will prevent the key from collapsing.
