About 9,700 Nissan Murano and Rogue SUVs Affected by Two Safety Recalls
About 9,700 Nissan SUVs are affected by two separate safety recalls.
A small number of new Rogue Select SUVs include an incorrect tire label, while about 9,700 Muranos could potentially have a defective antilock brake system (ABS).
About 110 model year 2015 Rogue Select compact SUVs have incorrect tire size information on the tire labels. Installing tires of the incorrect size may increase the risk of a crash. The SUVs also fail to meet federal safety standards.
Nissan will notify owners affected by the recall and will send them new labels, free of charge.
Nissan also announced a recall for model year 2015 Murano SUVs that are equipped with ABS actuators which may have contamination in the solenoid valves. This contamination can affect the valves' ability to completely close, allowing a buildup of hydraulic brake pressure. It can also keep the valves from fully opening, allowing hydraulic brake pressure to completely drop.
A malfunctioning ABS actuator could cause a loss of vehicle stability, increasing the risk of a crash.
Nissan will notify owners affected by the recall, and dealers will inspect and replace the ABS actuator, as necessary, free of charge.
For more information about either recall, owner can contact Nissan customer service at 1-800-647-7261.
