There are three models of Nissan, and one of Infiniti, which have a defect with the potential to cause a fire
Nissan is removing 394,025 cars from US roads due to a problem related to brake fluid that could result in a fire, according to reports from various media last Friday.
The leakage of the brake fluid comes from the electronic control of the circuit, which immediately causes an alert to light up. However, if this alert is ignored, “the leakage of brake fluid can create an electrical short circuit in the actuator circuit that, rarely, can cause a fire,” Toyota explains in its justification for withdrawal issued to the Agency of United States road safety (NHTSA).RELATED
So far, no accidents or people damaged by the defects have been reported.
The cars that present this factory error, according to the Japanese brand, are some vehicles that were manufactured between 2015 and 2019. Among them is the Nissan Maxima, 2016-2018 models; the Infiniti QX60 luxury, 2017-2019 models; the Nissan Murano, models 2015-2018 and the Nissan Pathfinder, models 2017-2019.
As NPR explains, the brand works to find a solution to this problem.
“Once the remedy is available, owners will receive a final notification letter asking them to bring their vehicle to an authorized Nissan dealer or INFINITI retailer to complete the repair work at no cost for parts or labor,” Nissan told NPR.
