Nissan has encountered a serious problem with a number of models equipped with the Jatco automatic transmission – it is installed on the Titan and Frontier, as well as the Z sports car. Cars with an automatic can inadvertently start moving into park mode. As a result, the automaker sent a warning to American dealers about a temporary ban on the sale of the listed vehicles and suspended their shipment.
A day earlier, Nissan announced a recall of the 2022 and 2023 Frontier and Titan for the same reason – more than 200,000 vehicles needed repairs. The defect was identified at the plant in Canton, Mississippi, during testing: then it was found that 11 of the 83 vehicles tested were affected by the problem. Now it turned out that the Nissan Z sports car, which in turn is produced at the Tochigi plant in Japan, can roll back in the parking lot.
Motor1.com reports that the company is at a loss to give a date for the resumption of shipments and car sales. This is due to the fact that the automaker has not yet found a solution to the rollback problem. It is also not known what percentage of Nissan Z vehicles have the same defect.
Meanwhile, the Nissan Z is on the list of contenders for the title. best car in america (North American Car, Truck and Utility Vehicle of the Year (NACTOY)). Acura Integra and Toyota GR Corolla are his company in this nomination.
