A new generation of old-school luxury cars are being recalled because they are being used by older people.
The new cars are made by the Japanese automaker and are manufactured between 1955 and 2020, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).
“These are old-fashioned cars and they should not be used by anyone older than 55,” said NHTSA spokesman Mark Condon.
“There is no evidence of these cars being damaged, and there is no indication that they are in any danger.”
This means the cars are still eligible for an emissions reduction program that includes a $10,000 federal grant to help older people retire their cars.NHTS spokesman Tom Hartman said the agency would have a “pretty good idea” by early October whether any of the cars had been used by someone older than 35, but said the program was still being expanded.
The agency is also investigating the safety of older-model models.
This could include whether the cars meet the standards for the 2018 model year.
Some cars may be more vulnerable to corrosion than older models, and some older models may be prone to cracking.
Nissan is investigating the risk posed by older models in the U.S. and Canada, but the company has said it will not recall any older models that were sold before 2025.
In its letter to dealers, Nissan says it will replace the affected vehicles if needed.
