Nissan recalls Rogues; rear lift gates can fall suddenly

Print | Front Page | Email this story

DETROIT (AP) — Nissan is recalling more than 108,000 Rogue small SUVs in the U.S. because the rear hatch door could fall on people without warning.

The recall covers Rogues from the 2014 to 2016 model years. The company says in government documents that salt water can get into the rear lift gate supports and cause rust. The supports can lose gas pressure and break, increasing the risk of injury.

Nissan says there have been no incidents in the U.S., but the Rogues have support struts that are similar to those in another country that have malfunctioned.

The automaker will notify owners in mid-June and replace the hatch support stays at no cost to owners. Parts are not yet available. Owners will get a second notice telling them when to take their SUVs to dealers for repairs.
