Nissan issued a recall notice (NHTSA Campaign Number: 21V-461) for this issue on June 17, 2021 for 138,736 vehicles. The cause of the issue is bent tie rods. The recall explains: “A bent tie rod condition may impair the driver’s ability to steer the vehicle. The steering wheel may be off-center and/or experience vibration.
