Anyone who owns or leases a 2020-2023 Nissan Titan or Frontier that was subject to a recent recall over rollaway risks.
What’s Going On?
Nissan Titan and Frontier pickup trucks have been recalled due to a defect that can allow the vehicles to roll away when parked. Attorneys working with ClassAction.org are investigating whether a class action lawsuit can be filed in light of the recall.
How Could a Class Action Help?
A class action lawsuit, if filed and successful, could provide compensation for loss of vehicle value, rental car costs and other expenses the recall isn’t likely to cover.
Attorneys working with ClassAction.org are looking into whether a class action lawsuit can be filed after more than 203,000 Nissan Titan and Frontier vehicles were recalled due to a defect that could allow the trucks to roll away when parked.
Attorneys believe the recall won’t be enough to compensate drivers for their losses and are looking into whether a class action lawsuit can be filed to help people get back money for things like loss of vehicle value and rental car costs.
Nissan first issued a recall of more than 180,000 Frontier and Titan pickup trucks in June 2022 due to a risk that the vehicles’ parking pawl, a part that locks the transmission in park, could fail to engage. The automaker warned that the affected trucks could roll away even when shifted into park.
Four injuries related to the issue had been reported to Nissan prior to the recall, according to news outlets.
Nissan expanded the recall in September 2022 to include 23,000 more Frontier and Titan vehicles after an investigation uncovered a potentially different problem with the parking pawl that also could cause the affected trucks to roll away when parked.
So far, Nissan has not announced a fix for either potential problem and has warned drivers to use their parking brakes every time they park to address the rollaway risk. The automaker plans to send notice of the recall to owners of affected trucks by November 1.
Which Trucks Are Affected by the Rollaway Risk?
The vehicles that were recalled due to rollaway risks include certain model year 2020-2023 Nissan Frontier and Titan pickup trucks equipped with a 9-speed automatic transmission.

How Do I Check if my Frontier or Titan Has a Recall?
Head over to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s website and type in your truck’s 17-character vehicle identification number (VIN) to see if it’s subject to any open recalls.
You can find your truck’s VIN near the bottom of the windshield on the driver’s side or on your registration or insurance card.
