Infiniti Driveshaft Recall: Safety Notice for 2010-2019 Models

Infiniti sedan owners, particularly those behind the wheel of two-wheel drive models manufactured between 2 thousand 11 and 2 thousand 19, heed this warning: a potential safety hazard lurks within your driveshaft.

Nissan North America has pinpointed a defect in these specific components and traced the origin of the problem to a shift in manufacturing practices undertaken by a supplier.

This unintended consequence has resulted in a decline in the driveshaft’s durability, raising worries about potential fractures. These fractures could cause a complete loss of power while the vehicle is being driven, posing a significant safety risk.

This component, crucial for transmitting power to the wheels, may wear out prematurely in affected vehicles, leading to a sudden loss of power while driving.

The good news is that authorized Infiniti dealerships can rectify this issue with a free replacement propeller shaft, and the repair itself only takes about an hour to complete.

This recall encompasses a variety of Infiniti vehicles produced between 2010 and 2019. The earliest affected models are the two-wheel-drive Infiniti M35 Hybrid (built between April 2010 and September 2013) and the M56 (produced from October 2009 to October 2013).

If you own a later model Infiniti, the Q50 (manufactured from December 2012 to June 2018), Q70 (assembled from November 2013 to August 2019), Q70 Hybrid (produced from November 2013 to January 2018), or Q70L (built between July 2014 and September 2019), it’s important to check if your vehicle falls within the recall timeframe.

Infiniti will begin notifying owners via first-class mail starting August 12, 2024. Once you receive the notification, scheduling an appointment at your nearest Infiniti dealership to have the faulty propeller shaft replaced is crucial. This proactive step ensures your Infiniti continues to operate safely and reliably.
