Rogues are being
recalled
by the manufacturer because of a potential problem with the system for securing child safety seats.
Nissan says it is unaware of any incidents related to the defect. Owners of the SUV will be notified by mail starting July 30. If you own a 2021 Nissan Rogue, you can call the manufacturer at 800-867-7669 and refer to the recall using the number PC812.
Is your 2021 Nissan Rogue impacted by the latest recall?

Nissan Rogue recall details

The focus of Nissan’s recall is on the upper tether wires in the Nissan Rogue’s LATCH systems, which might not have been properly welded to the seat back frame. This could prevent child seats from being securely anchored.
Consumer Reports
says the supplier of the seats informed Nissan of the issue in April 2021. During an internal audit, the automaker found insufficient welds on four seats in the vehicle. These seats were only installed in the Nissan Rogue, so the issue doesn’t affect any other Nissan or Infiniti.
The automaker plans to inspect all of the 47,098 SUVs and replace any defective seatbacks free of charge. If you have a 2021 Nissan Rogue, don’t hesitate to take part in the recall.

How to participate in a recall

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration makes participating in a recall easy. On its website, you can use your
vehicle’s identification number
(VIN) to find whether it is part of any open recalls.
If you find your vehicle is part of this recall—or any other—follow the instructions listed in the recall to get it repaired. In most cases, you’ll be asked to bring the vehicle to your dealership, where it will be examined and any defective parts will be replaced.
Recall repairs are always free, so you don’t have to worry about the high costs of dealership service. Recalls are pretty common, so it’s a good idea to check regularly to see whether your vehicle has had a recall issued.

Other ways to protect yourself from faulty parts

Not every part failure can be caught by recalls. If you want to protect yourself from having to pay high repair costs out of pocket, you might want to look into adding
mechanical breakdown insurance
to your policy.
Mechanical breakdown insurance covers any engine failure not caused by regular wear and tear or an accident. While adding an extended warranty to your vehicle might also protect you, mechanical breakdown coverage is usually cheaper and more flexible.
