  • The recall includes 26,626 Armada SUVs and Titan pickups
  • Affected vehicles have an incorrect certification label
  • Nissan will mail owners a new label and instructions on how to install it

Nissan is recalling nearly 27,000 Armada SUVs and full-size Titan pickups due to inaccurate information on the vehicles' tire pressure labels. The automaker and the federal government's National Highway Traffic Safety Administration recently announced the recall, which affects 2012 model year Titans and Armadas built between August 12, 2011 and March 13, 2012.

According to Nissan and the NHTSA, affected vehicles have an incorrect "part 567 certification label" - a federally-mandated decal mounted on each vehicle that lists important information including wheel sizes. In addition to putting Nissan at odds with the US government's motor vehicle safety standards, the erroneous label could lead to drivers installing incorrect wheel and tire combinations, which may increase the risk of an accident.

Nissan says the recall is scheduled to begin on May 14 and will involve the automaker mailing Titan and Armada owners corrected certification labels and instructions on how to install them. Owners who don't want to install the labels on their own can visit a Nissan dealership, which the automaker says will affix the label free of charge. According to Nissan, concerned owners can call the automaker directly at 1-615-725-1000 or dial the NHTSA at 1-888-327-4236 for more information.

The recall is Nissan's second involving federally mandated certification labels on its 2012 Titan and Armada in the last few weeks. On April 22, the automaker announced it was recalling nearly 1,000 vehicles equipped with the optional "sports appearance package" due to an inaccurate placard that mistakenly identified the seating capacity. According to the NHTSA, the listed seating capacity was too high and could cause drivers to overload their vehicle, potentially leading to an accident.

The Titan and Armada are both assembled at Nissan's manufacturing facility in Canton, Mississippi - a small town located about 30 miles north of Jackson. Sales of the large vehicles have slowed recently due to their aging designs, with both models posting year-over-year sales declines of more than 5 percent in 2011.

What it means to you: Although this recall is minor, Titan and Armada owners should affix the new label to their vehicles to prevent problems down the line.
