Nissan Recalls More Than 215,000 Sedans And SUVs Over Brake Fluid-Related Fire Risk

Nissan has issued a recall for more than 215,000 of its vehicles in the United States due to a possible fire risk.

The Japanese car manufacturer states that an anti-lock brake pump seal could break. If this were to happen, brake fluid could easily leak onto the electronic circuit board, triggering a malfunction. If drivers ignore the ABS warning light, it is possible that the brake fluid spillage will lead to an electrical short circuit and potentially start a fire.

Models affected include the 2015-2017 Nissan Murano, 2016-2017 Nissan Maxima, 2017-2018 Nissan Pathfinder, and 2017 Infiniti QX60. Overall, there are exactly 215,124 vehicles potentially affected by this issue.

Nissan believes that approximately 56 per cent of the vehicles it is recalling have the faulty ABS pump seal. The company has warned owners to not drive their vehicles if the ABS light stays on for more than 10 seconds after startup.

Owners of the affected vehicles will soon be notified by Nissan about the issue and inspections of the faulty pump seal will start next month. The recall is expected to commence on October 15 and all necessary repairs will be carried out free of charge.

Nissan has been investigating issues with its ABS warning lights since February and committed to this recall at the end of August.
