Nissan has identified that software and a component part of the compressor have caused the air conditioning cooling issues in some Kicks e-POWER vehicles sold in Thailand.
While Nissan claims the problem “does not affect the vehicle’s safety nor its driveability”, Kicks owners with the problem will be offered a solution starting next month.
“Nissan will conduct service campaigns in Thailand on Kicks e-POWER model year 2022 and 2023 vehicles. The service campaign is expected to begin in early June. Nissan will make further announcements about the campaign details and reach out to affected customers,” the company stated.
“Due to the partial readiness of the parts at this moment, Nissan will give priority to customers whose vehicles have experienced the air conditioning cooling problem,” Nissan stated.
Unfortunately customers waiting for delivery of their new Kicks will suffer a slight delay as a result of the glitch.
“In relation to this, there will be a production and vehicle delivery impact. We regret to inform our customers who have placed orders that there will be a delay in receiving their new vehicles until the beginning of June. We will keep our customers updated as soon as production and vehicle delivery restart,” the Nissan announcement added..
