Infiniti Announces Voluntary Recall of Certain 2000 and 2001 QX4 Luxury Sport Utility Vehicles
                  - Approximately 9,200 vehicles involved -

    GARDENA, Calif., Dec. 8 Infiniti, the luxury division of
Nissan North America, Inc., announced today a voluntary safety recall campaign
on certain 2000 and 2001 model year QX4 sport utility vehicles manufactured
from October 1, 1999 to March 22, 2000.  Approximately 9,200 vehicles are
involved in the campaign.
    On some QX4 vehicles manufactured during this period, the ignition lock
cylinder cap could come loose and eventually cause the steering wheel lock to
engage preventing the driver from turning the steering wheel.  No accidents
have occurred due to this malfunction.
    To repair this condition at no cost to the customer, Infiniti retailers
will inspect and replace ignition lock assemblies on affected vehicles with
loose or missing end cap connector pins and a ring clip will be installed on
all other affected vehicles to prevent loosening of the pins.  Infiniti has
informed the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration of this recall and
will begin contacting the owners of these vehicles immediately to request that
they schedule appointments with Infiniti retailers to have their vehicle
    A free service loan car may be arranged if the customer requires alternate
transportation.  Owners of affected vehicles can call 877-873-2255 with any
questions.  This safety recall does not apply to the Nissan Pathfinder.
    Infiniti is committed to a high level of customer service and is working
with its retailers to address this condition for QX4 customers.
