Hopefully this is allowed to be posted. I just wanted to let you guys know of a recall on select 2012 Nissan Versa's. I received the notice in March and thought it might be good to post here.

Nissan is recalling certain model year 2012 Versa vehicles equipped with an automatic transmission and manufactured from June 9, 2011, through January 13, 2012 for failing to comply with the requirements of federal motor vehicle safety standard no. 114,”theft protection.” Due to interference between the shifter rod and the shift knob, the vehicles may be shifted out of the park position without depressing the brake pedal. The operator can inadvertently shift the vehicle into gear without the brake pedal being depressed, increasing the risk of a crash or injury to a nearby pedestrian. Nissan will notify owners, and dealers will inspect and replace the shifter knob or the shifter assembly as needed, free of charge. The safety recall is expected to begin on February 20, 2012. Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's vehicle safety hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (tty 1-800-424-9153), or go to Home | Safercar -- National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) .

Hmm so it's like the "Shift lock" is permanently disabled on these vehicles then.
