Toronto, Ontario – September 21, 2018 – Nissan has recalled approximately 240,000 cars and SUV’s worldwide due to the potential risk of a fire caused by faulty seals in the pump, as reported by Global News.
The company is warning drivers that if they see the anti-lock brake warning for more than ten seconds after starting the engine, that they should be advised to park their vehicle outside and away from other vehicles and structures.
The anti-lock brake pump has the potential to leak fluid onto a circuit board, which would result in an electrical short and increase the risk of a potential fire.
The recall includes certain 2015 - 2017 Nissan Murano, 2016 and 2017 Nissan Maxima, 2017 and 2018 Nissan Pathfinder and 2017 Infiniti QX60 vehicles.
There are 19,761 affected vehicles in Canada, according to a Nissan spokesperson.
The company estimates that 56 percent of the vehicles being recalled have the problem.
Nissan Muranos were previously recalled for the same issue in 2016.
