The 2021 Nissan Rogue, known in Ukraine as the X-Trail, has been recalled for the fourth time this year due to rear seat problems.
The recall notice states that in some instances the rear seats were not properly manufactured by the Nissan supplier. The automaker says the top safety cables in the rear seats may not have been properly welded to the seat back frame, which is important as they are part of the LATCH system for securing child seats.
Investigation by Nissan revealed that these cables may have become dislodged during the welding process, which means they may not have been welded sufficiently to the back of the seat. This can result in the safety lines not meeting the strength requirements of the child restraint systems. During inspection Nissan found three seats on the left and one on the right with insufficient welds. The company is not aware of any incidents related to this issue.
A total of 47,098 Nissan Rogue SUVs of the 2021 model year fall under the recall. If dealers find an inappropriate weld, they will replace the damaged seat back free of charge. Owners will be notified by mail starting July 30th.

The last time the Nissan Rogue was recalled was in May due to the fact that the rear brake caliper assemblies may have been missing an internal bushing that secures the o-ring. This recall was attended by 14,045 copies of the 2021 model year. Nissan also recalled the 2021 Rogue earlier this year because some models were fitted with wheel nuts made for the Nissan Maxima. Moreover, 2,146 vehicles were recalled in February due to an improperly secured fuel hose that could leak.
