Nissan has announced that they are recalling 188,000 Infiniti and Nissan sports-utility vehicles worldwide in order to fix faulty brake control software. According to Nissan the faulty software could increase the risk of a car crash.
2013 and 2014 Nissan Pathfinders are affected as well as 2013 Infinity JX35 and the 2014 Infiniti QX60. According to Nissan during light braking on rough roads the faulty software could lead to longer-than-expected stopping distances. So far no accidents or injuries have been reported as a result of the issue.
The car manufacturer will be contacting owners of the vehicles affected within the next 60 days so that they may take the vehicles into a local Nissan dealer and have the issue fixed. Approximately 152,000 SUVs in the United States are affected and more than 30,000 affected vehicles were sold in China.
Anyone who believes their vehicle may be at risk can contact Nissan at (800) 647-7261.
