Vehicle Description: Pickup trucks and sport utility vehicles equipped with automatic transmissions fail to comply with the requirements of FMVSS No. 102, "Transmission Shift Lever Sequence, Starter Interlock, and Transmission Braking Effect. " These vehicles could have a shift cable lock plate that is too brittle and can break. The gear shift lever and the "PRNDL" indicator may move, but the transmission will not shift out of the Park position. Over a period of time, the transmission could shift out of the Park position, but the gear indicated on the display may differ from the gear engaged in the transmission.

If the driver selects 'drive' and the transmission is actually in 'reverse', a vehicle crash could occur. Dealers will replace the automatic transmission shift cable lock plate.

Owner notification is expected to begin during November 2000. Owners who take their vehicles to an authorized dealer on an agreed upon service date and do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact Nisan at 1-800-647-7261. Also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's Auto Safety Hotline at 1-888-DASH-2-DOT (1-888-327-4236).
