Nissan is recalling 30,799 Titan and Titan XD pickup trucks and Versa sedans from the 2020 and 2021 model years because their turn signal bulbs could prematurely fail.

This means that drivers might not be able to signal their intent to others on the road. In addition, a vehicle without functioning turn signals would not meet federal motor vehicle safety standards.

If one bulb fails, the still-functional bulb will flash faster, with significantly faster audible feedback. This is to alert the driver of a failure.

The bulb manufacturer has since corrected the underlying problem that caused the initial failure, and Nissan dealerships will replace the faulty bulbs free of charge.

How to contact the manufacturer: Nissan will begin notifying owners of affected vehicles starting in August. Owners may also contact Nissan at 800-867-7669.

Check to see whether your vehicle has an open recall: NHTSA’s website will tell you whether your vehicle has any open recalls that need to be addressed.

If you plug your car’s 17-digit vehicle identification number (VIN) into NHTSA’s website and a recall doesn’t appear, it means your vehicle doesn’t currently have any open recalls. Because automakers issue recalls often, and for many older vehicles, we recommend checking back regularly to see whether your vehicle has had a recall issued.

Despite my love for quirky, old European sedans like the Renault Medallion, it's my passion to help others find a safe, reliable car that still puts a smile on their face—even if they're stuck in traffic. When I'm not behind the wheel or the keyboard, you can find me exploring a new city on foot or planning my next trip.
