Edaran Tan Chong Motor Sdn Bhd (ETCM), the sole distributor and assembler of Nissan vehicles in Malaysia together with Tan Chong Ekspres Auto Servis Centre (TCEAS), have undertaken a recall campaign to notify its customers and to replace parts for Nissan vehicles affected by defective Takata airbag inflators and back door stays.

The paint coating applied to the back door stay does not comply with design requirements for anti-rust treatment.

As a result, the cylinder tube of the door stay may gradually corrode causing the gas in the cylinder to leak out.

Over an extended period of time, the back door stay may weaken thus disabling the hold-up function of the back door.

Replacement of defective back door stay will be conducted once improved parts are available in September 2016.

All Nissan customers of the affected Nissan vehicles will be notified directly and by letter through TCEAS.

Those notified are advised to call the nearest TCEAS outlet for an appointment.

Customers may also call the Nissan Customer Care Centre at the Toll-Free line: 1800-88-3838 for further clarification or visit the website (click on ‘Owners’ tab followed by ‘Recall Campaign’) to find out if their Nissan vehicle is involved in this recall campaign.

All labour and replacement parts for these service campaigns will be at no cost to owners.
