Nissan Truck Recall - A Possible Transmission Issue That Could Cause An Accident
So, you finally went out and bought yourself the truck of your dreams in Bradenton Florida. That's great to hear. Now, you can haul tools, lumber, and so much more. Plus, you should be able to pull a trailer, boat, jet ski, and other items with ease. Of course, there is also the style factor to take into consideration. Pickups are no longer have rough exterior appearances. Instead, they are things of beauty, and yours is sure to dazzle and amaze wherever you go.
However, what if something is wrong with your ride? No, it isn't messed up because of something you did. Nor is the vehicle breaking down due to a mechanical failure. Rather, the problem stems from a defect and one that there is no fix for as of yet!
Nissan Titans And Frontier Pick Up Truck Recalled
It has been brought to our attention that there are approximately 203,223 Nissan Frontier and Titan trucks on the market that could potentially have a transmission problem. The vehicles in question are 2020 through 2023 models. Hence, if you're the proud owner of one of them, be sure to listen up.
These vehicles may have a transmission parking pawl that fails to engage when they are shifted into Park. If you believe that doesn't sound like a big deal, think again. That means even after you park your truck, it could roll away, increasing the risk of a crash and injury. Apparently, a remedy for this matter is currently in development, so as mentioned, there is no fix readily available. For now, it is recommended that owners apply the parking break each time they park their trucks. That should prevent the rolling away from occurring at the moment.
For more information on this situation, contact the local Bradenton Nissan dealership. A representative with the company should be able to provide you with everything you need and tell you what steps to take to rectify the issue. But now, let's take this article in a different direction.
What If You Are Severely Hurt By A Defective Product?
People injured by defective products, including those right here in Bradenton, often wonder if they have cases against the manufacturers. There are three primary kinds of defects that give rise to a manufacturer's liability claim. They are manufacturing defects, defects in warnings/instructions, and design defects. To have a legitimate manufacturer's liability claim, a person must prove a product was defective in one of these ways.
As far as defectively designed products are concerned, an injured party may be able to hold a manufacturer liable without showing they're actually at fault. When it comes to proving a design defect, a victim must show an item was not safe for its intended use. This can be a challenging task, to say the least, though. That's because courts often side with manufacturers about what is safe.
Did the manufacturer deviate from the design specs, making the product unsafe? That's what you'll need to show to prove a product was manufactured defectively. All may not be lost if the design specifications were followed, though. Something can still go wrong, like a problem with the materials used to construct the item, to cause a defect. You'll just need to prove it.
Some Last Words
Obviously, proving a manufacturer failed to provide adequate instructions/warnings can be done too. However, the process can also be challenging.
