The small SUVs were made from Feb. 3 to May 26 of this year.
The company says a weak weld can cause the seat backs to come loose in a crash, increasing the risk of injury. Nissan says it has no reports of injuries caused by the problem.
Affected owners will be notified by the company, which will replace the faulty part that holds the seat back in place.
The recall is expected to start later this month.
