The 2014-2016 Nissan Rogue is being recalled to address an issue with its rear tailgate struts.
A total of 108,503 units are affected by the recall, according to filings with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). According to the recall notice, the tailgate struts may fail on the Nissan Rogue crossover due to insufficient anti-corrosion coatings. This can cause the outer tube to rust through the middle, allowing all the gas to escape, causing the strut to break off. Nissan is unaware of any failures in the U.S., but it did find broken struts in January on an older, unspecified model sold elsewhere. As a result, the Japanese automaker decided to recall the Rogue out of caution.
What is not affected by the recall is the Rogue Select model that was sold alongside the current-generation Rogue between 2014 and 2015. To resolve the issue, Nissan dealerships will replace both tailgate struts.
