  • Nissan is recalling 11,076 Juke crossovers
  • The recall is for a defective weld in the rear seatback
  • Nissan will mail recall notices this month

Nissan will soon recall more than 11,000 units of its compact JUKE crossover. The automaker and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration recently announced the recall, which affects 2012 models manufactured between February and May.

According to the NHTSA, the recall is necessary because an incomplete weld could cause the JUKE's rear seatback striker to separate. As a result, the rear seatback could become loose in an accident, increasing the risk of injury to the crossover's rear seat occupants.

Nissan says the recall affects 11,076 Juke models built from February 3, 2012, to May 26. The automaker says it has not received any reports of accidents or injuries stemming from the defective part, which was discovered during routine testing of internal components. Nissan also confirmed no other models are included in the recall.

Owners of affected JUKE models will receive a recall notice in the mail urging them to visit a dealership for service. According to Nissan, dealers will eliminate the seatback striker's risk of separation by replacing the part with a stronger one. Although recall notices will be mailed out later this month, JUKE owners with questions can contact Nissan at 1-800-647-7261 or reach the NHTSA's recall hotline at 1-888-327-4236.

The potentially defective rear seatback striker marks the JUKE's second recall in 2012. In February, Nissan recalled 2011 and 2012 Juke models along with the M sedan and QX SUV from its upscale Infiniti division. That recall, which affected more than 78,000 units, was required to fix a poorly tightened fuel pressure sensor that could pose an increased fire risk.

The JUKE is Nissan's smallest crossover in a lineup that also includes the Rogue and Murano, along with the Pathfinder, Xterra and Armada SUVs. Powered by a turbocharged four-cylinder engine, the JUKE's primary attraction is its unique styling, which includes large fenders, a sloping roofline, a wide grille and unusual hood-mounted headlights.

What it means to you: If you own a 2012 Juke, a recall notice may arrive in the mail shortly.
