Just like any other vehicle, Nissan does experience recalls for their product. Most recently, they had to recall 400,00 models of the Nissan Murano from 2015-2018 and the Maxima sedan from 2016-2018, due to a braking system defect that can cause them to catch fire. In 2016 Nissan recalled over three million vehicles including the 2016-2017 Maxima, the 2013-2016 Altima, the Leaf, Sentra, and Pathfinder due to problems with the front passenger airbag causing adults to register as a child or even as empty.
