Approximately 22,173 units of Nissan vehicles, meanwhile, are affected in Malaysia by defective back-door stays. The paint coating applied to the back door stay does not comply with design requirements for anti-rust treatment. As a result, the cylinder tube of the door stay may gradually corrode causing the gas in the cylinder to leak out. Over an extended period of time, the back door stay may weaken thus disabling the hold-up function of the back door.
