Nissan is recalling more than 700,000 Rogue and Rogue Sport models

Here we have a reminiscence of old times like in the good old days. There’s no software or circuit board included, just a flimsy piece of plastic. Nissan is recalling 712,458 examples of the Rogue and Rogue Sport in the US because of a potential problem with their ignition keys. The jackknife-style keys, sold with the base S trim of the Rogue and Rogue Sport, have a plastic bushing at the pivot point. That plastic may be weak enough that it won’t hold the key in the open and closed positions. When the key is in the ignition, that weak axle can allow the plastic body to dangle from the key blade in the ignition. The driver’s hand coming into contact with the dangling part of the key can accidentally turn the car off while the car is in motion, increasing the likelihood of an accident.

Affected models are:

Nissan will begin sending notification letters to owners on March 17. The automaker is still working on a fix, with owners being instructed not to hang anything from their keys and to “use the key in a non-folding orientation.” That is, the key can be inserted into the ignition in an orientation that allows the body of the key to fall into a 90-degree hanging position from the blade, or flipped so that the body of the key is naturally fully extended. , fall to the closed position. Owners should ensure the latter.

The automaker says that once parts for the interim fix are available, owners will go to dealers to have a fastener inserted into the key to keep it from turning. Not the most pocket-friendly setup, but better than the increased risk of an accident. Until this is fixed, the rogue and rogue game population is under a stop sell order.

Owners can contact Nissan Customer Service at 800-867-7669 and refer to internal recall number R22C5.
