Hyundai Genesis and Nissan and Infiniti SUVs Recalled Over Unrelated Brake Problems

While unrelated between them, Hyundai’s and Nissan / Infiniti’s latest recall actions both concern issues with the braking system.

In the case of the Japanese carmaker, the group is recalling 151,695 examples of certain model year 2013-2014 Nissan Pathfinders built from April 18, 2012, through September 20, 2013; model year 2013 Infiniti JX35 crossovers manufactured from September 15, 2011, through January 16, 2013; and model year 2014 Infiniti QX60s made from January 17, 2013, through September 20, 2013

“In the affected vehicles, during light braking on rough roads, the antilock brake system (ABS) brake pressure output software may lead to an increase in stopping distance,” Nissan told the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).

To fix the issue, Nissan and Infiniti dealers will simply reprogram the ABS, free of charge, of course, with customers to be informed about the service schedule in the coming weeks.

Hyundai on its behalf has posted a recall that affects 27,500 Genesis sedans from the 2009 through 2012 model years over faulty brakes, which have led to 23 complaints and one accident report on NHTSA’s website.

The Korean brand said that there are “potential durability issues” with the brake system’s Hydraulic Electronic Control Unit, and that the latest recall is a follow-up to the one made last March as it didn’t include all vehicles affected.

“Hyundai previously initiated a service campaign in March of 2013 to replace the brake fluid in the subject vehicle population,” the automaker said in a statement sent to USA Today.
