Nissan Crossovers Recalled For Wiring Problem
We’ll all remember 2014 as the year of the recalls, but it looks like recall season isn’t quite over yet. Late last month, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration announced two recalls involving 640,000 Nissan and Infiniti crossovers.
The most affected vehicle is the 2008-2013 Nissan Rogue, where floor corrosion on the driver’s side could cause a harness connector to short and cause a fire. The number of Rogues affected by this recall is estimated to be 468,815. Nissan will fix this issue by replacing the harness connector with the addition of a waterproof seal if necessary.
The second recall affects the 2013-2014 Nissan Pathfinder, 2013 Infiniti JX35, and 2014 Infiniti QX60 for the secondary hood latch. If the hood is popped, the secondary latch could fail, which could cause the hood to pop up while you’re driving. Nissan’s fix for this is changing the angle of the hood release to allow additional length for the release cable.
Nissan will be contacting owners of the affected vehicles to arrange free repairs, but if you would like to find out for yourself, you can call Nissan customer service at 1-800-647-7261.
