According to the official report, Nissan North America, Inc. has launched the recall after learning that the 2016 and 2017 Nissan Maxima vehicles manufactured between February 10, 2015 and August 19, 2016, the 2015 through 2017 Murano units manufactured between August 22, 2014 and August 19, 2016, and the 2015 and 2016 Murano Hybrid had been equipped with Anti-Lock Brake (ABS) actuator pumps that could end up allowing brake fluid to leak onto an internal electrical circuit board. If that occurs, there might be an electrical short and a fire may take place, putting the lives of occupants in major danger.
The official announcement claims that Nissan has claimed it will be contacting all impacted vehicle owners but has yet to notify regulators about the date.
Owners who are concerned about their safety should contact Nissan right away to obtain more information on how thy should proceed.
Only consumers with the Nisan Maxima or the Murano fitted with Intelligent Cruise Control, as well as owners of the Murano Hybrid of the 2015 and 2016 year makes were impacted.
If you have one of the recalled vehicles and you want to make sure you and your loved ones are safe, reach out to a dealer or schedule a visit. The ABS Actuator will be inspected and, if necessary, it will be replaced entirely for free.
Consumers may know when brake fluid has leaked onto the circuit board by checking the ABS warning lamp, which will be illuminated for more than 10 seconds after the engine is started. If that occurs to you, park the vehicle outdoors, away from other vehicles. Do not drive the unit.
