1998 Infiniti QX4 Recalls
In areas where winter road salt is used, a mixture of snow/water and salt may enter an assembly location hole in the upper strut housing. This corrosive mixture can collect on the mating surface of the strut housing panel and the inner hood ledge assembly; over time, this can cause rusting of the strut tower housing. The rust can weaken the housing, causing it to crack and pull away from the inner hood ledge assembly. This can lead to grinding noises and increased steering effort, which, if severe enough, can cause the steering column to break. This would result in a loss of steering control, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will inspect the strut housing and repair the vehicles as necessary. An interim notification letter should be mailed to owners prior to May 16, 2011.

Probably the best car I have ever owned. Approx 180,000 miles just took to Infiniti dealer for strut housing recall. Has been a wonderful car. Would definitely buy another.
I have had this car for 12 years. It has 267,000 miles and I just started to have problems with it. Nothing major that would have gone out on most cars with half those miles. Great car and the mechanics that have worked on them say it is one of the best cars made.
