    Nissan is in discussions with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration to potentially recall certain 2010 Titan and Frontier pickup trucks along with Nissan's body-on-frame SUVs, according to a report in Automotive News.

    Up to 48,700 Nissan light trucks could be affected by an improperly welded lower suspension control link that could crack and fail.

    You prob won't see this in the news which amazes me since Toyota's recall problems could be handled by driver interaction (put in neutral then apply brakes).
    As opposed wouldn't the lower suspension control link cracking then failing would pretty much deem you f'd going down the road at highway speeds?

    Im sure its all over the Nissan forums... It might not hit the news as hard as Toyota because they arent known for quality..

    Too bad they aren't doing anything about the rear end gears sheering(that is a know problem). My buddie just got effed cuz you have to replace the entire rear axle assembly( $4000 btw). The ones on the Frontier are larger than on the Titan's! Glad I got a yota, even with the "minor" things we have.
