Nissan Frontiers and Titans from 2020 to 2023 are affected, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration in a September 7 recall report.
The transmission parking pawl, which prevents vehicles from moving, may fail to engage when the vehicle is put in park, resulting in a vehicle rollaway, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
The agency estimates that only 1% of the 203,223 vehicles potentially involved in the recall have the defect.
In the meantime, owners should use their parking brake when parking.
The agency expects notification letters to be mailed on November 1.
