Nissan Recalling Hundreds of Thousands of Vehicles

Jan. 28, 2015
The reason for the recall stems from different issues involving possible electrical problems and a problematic hood latch.

Two different problems have forced Nissan to issue a recall involving 768,000 vehicles.

Nissan issued the recalls involving an electrical problem and a faulty hood latch.

More than 550,000 focus on Rogue models from between 2008 and 2013.

The company says moisture can seep through the driver’s side floor, causing an electrical short and potentially starting a fire.

So far there have been no reports of injuries or wrecks because of a fire or short.

After inspecting, dealers with either replace or seal the wiring in the floor.

The rest involve Pathfinder SUVs from 2013 and 2014 and the Infiniti JX35 from 2013.

The National Highway Transportation detailed problems with the secondary hood latch.

It does not always latch when the hood is closed.

There have been several reports of hoods on those models flying open, causing damage to the auto.

None of those cases led to any injuries or accidents and dealers will replace the latch at no charge to the owner.

Recalls have also been issued for the same vehicles in Canada and 30 other countries.
