(NEXSTAR) – Nissan is recalling about 203,223 vehicles regarding the problem of faulty parking elements that can allow pickups to roll when parked.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reports certain 9-speed automatic transmission Nissan Titans and Nissan Frontiers may have defective parking prawls, which are designed to automatically lock the transmission when the vehicle is in park.

The affected vehicles are:

  • 2020-2023 Nissan Titan — manufactured between December 13, 2019 and August 25, 2022
  • 2020-2021 Nissan Frontier – manufactured between June 10, 2020 and June 25, 2021
  • 2022-2023 Nissan Frontier – manufactured between July 13, 2021 and August 25, 2022

While Nissan says owners will be notified by November 1, if they have one of the recalled vehicles, owners are advised to use the parking brake whenever parking the vehicle. Nissan says it is working to develop a solution to the problem. There have been no confirmed incidents related to the issue, the automaker said.

Meanwhile, NHTSA and Nissan also announced the 9-speed automatic 2023 Nissan Z that was recalled and a stop-sale has been issued.

Nissan is now determining whether other Nissan vehicles or Infiniti models may be affected, NHTSA said.

If you have questions or concerns, you can call Nissan at (800) 867-7669 or NHTSA at (888) 327-4236.
