In a document filed with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, Nissan said 918 Titan Trucks built from June 10 through July 22, 2011 and equipped with the “sports appearance package” have incorrect seating capacity information displayed on the tire placard. As a result they are in violation of federal motor vehicle safety rules. The car maker said the placard indicates the trucks have seats for six poeple when in fact they are designed to carry five.
Under the recall Nissan will send owners a new label with instructions on how to install it. Owners an also take their trucks to the dealer for installation free of charge. The recall is expected to begin on or about May 14.
