Report: Nissan investigating defective Dana driveshafts on its trucks and SUVs

A new report from shows that Nissan is investigating driveshaft yoke issues in the automaker's 2010 trucks and SUVs. The issue stems from a part made by Dana Corporation, and a spokesperson from Nissan reportedly told the Bureau that "Nissan/Infiniti vehicles built with one of these yokes will not experience a loss of control or present a safety risk even in the unlikely event the part should fail." Since the issue is relegated to 2010 model trucks and SUVs, two vehicle types that aren't exactly flying off Nissan and Infiniti lots right now, the number of vehicles potentially affected by the issue is relatively small. Bureau sources say that the Frontier and Titan are the models affected by the investigation, but Nissan has yet to officially name any vehicles involved.

The announcement of an investigation of Dana driveshaft yokes comes after Toyota announced a recall of 8,000 Tacoma trucks for driveshafts that cracked during the manufacturing process, though there is no confirmation at this point if the two parts are related. Nissan reportedly has five days to determine whether to initiate a recall for the problem with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
