Infiniti recalls

 

For Models: Infiniti JX35, Infiniti Q50, Infiniti QX60, Nissan Altima, Nissan LEAF, Nissan Sentra

Body, Interior & Misc., March 25, 2014

RepairPal Expert Overview:

The airbag system uses a sensor in the front passenger seat to detect if the seat is occupied by an adult. The affected vehicles are being recalled because this sensor, part of the occupant classification system (OCS), may incorrectly identify the passenger seat as empty when it is actually occupied by an adult. When the passenger seat is determined to be empty, the passenger airbag is disabled. Failure of the passenger airbag to properly deploy when necessary would increase the risk of injury to someone seated in the passenger seat in the event of an accident. Dealers will update the OCS software to correct this concern.

For Models: Infiniti JX35, Infiniti QX60, Infiniti QX60 Hybrid

Brakes, October 17, 2013

RepairPal Expert Overview:

These vehicles are being recalled because a software concern with the antilock brake system (ABS) could cause the brake system to perform less efficiently than expected during light brake pedal application on rough roads. The resulting increased stopping distance would increase the risk of a crash. Dealers will reprogram the ABS to correct this concern.

For Models: Infiniti M35, Infiniti M45

Drive Train, September 26, 2013

RepairPal Expert Overview:

On nearly all cars on the road today the engine idle speed is computer controlled. These vehicles are being recalled because the idle may be to low as a result of a sensor failure causing the computer to operate in the fail-safe (limp home) mode. In the limp home mode, the computer will not properly adjust for variations in the engine idle speed. As a result the engine can stall unexpectedly at idle or when coming to a stop. The sensor causing this concern is the accelerator pedal position sensor. Dealers will replace the accelerator pedal assembly and reprogram the engine control module to correct this concern.

For Models: Infiniti FX35, Infiniti FX45, Infiniti I35, Infiniti QX4, Nissan Maxima, Nissan Pathfinder

Body, Interior & Misc., April 12, 2013

RepairPal Expert Overview:

Airbags use a chemical reaction contained in an inflator module to create the pressure necessary to inflate the bags when deployment is required. These vehicles are being recalled because the front passenger airbag inflator may produce excessive internal pressure when deployed. As a result, the inflator module could rupture, causing metal fragments to strike vehicle occupants. Dealers will inspect and replace any defective passenger front airbag inflator modules found.

For Models: Infiniti JX35

Brakes, April 12, 2013

RepairPal Expert Overview:

The brake caliper holds the brake pads in the proper position and squeezes them against the brake rotor when the brakes are applied. These Pathfinder and JX vehicles are being recalled because the one or both of the front brake caliper assemblies may have been manufactured incorrectly. These calipers can crack, causing it to move and contact the inside of the wheel. Dealers will inspect the affected parts and replace them as necessary.

For Models: Infiniti JX35

Engine, August 13, 2012

RepairPal Expert Overview:

Due to an assembly issue, the fuel transfer tube may be misrouted inside the fuel tank. As a result, the fuel level float may be prevented from dropping as the fuel is consumed and the fuel guage may read a fuel level higher than actually exists. If the fuel gauge does not accurately show when the tank is becoming empty, the vehicle may run out of gas unexpectedly, stalling, and increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will inspect and re-route the fuel transfer tube and install a new O-ring to correct this concern.

For Models: Infiniti M45

Electrical & Lights, March 5, 2012

RepairPal Expert Overview:

Due to a circuit board failure, the fuel gauge may indicate a fuel level higher than what actually exists. As a result, the vehicle may run out of gas without warning, causing the vehicle to stall, which can cause a crash. Dealers will modify the affected circuit board to correct this concern.

For Models: Infiniti M37, Infiniti M56, Infiniti QX56, Nissan JUKE

Engine, February 23, 2012

RepairPal Expert Overview:

On certain vehicles, the fuel pressure sensor may not have been tightened to the correct specification. As a result, the fuel pressure sensor may loosen due to heat and vibration, causing a fuel leak. Fuel leaks always increase the risk of a fire. Dealers will replace the fuel pressure sensor to correct this concern.

 

For Models: Infiniti Q45

Body, Interior & Misc., February 20, 2012

RepairPal Expert Overview:

The wiring connector for the seat mounted airbag may experience increased electrical resistance and may not deploy. In the event of a crash, non-deployment of the side airbags could increase the risk of personal injury. Dealers will modify the wiring connector to correct this concern.

For Models: Infiniti FX35, Infiniti FX50, Infiniti M37, Infiniti M56, Nissan Frontier, Nissan NV1500, Nissan Pathfinder, Nissan Xterra

Engine, December 19, 2011

RepairPal Expert Overview:

Some of the bolts that attach the engine oil cooler and filter to the engine may have been manufactured below specification strength. As a result, the bolt may break at the oil filter attachment point, which can cause an engine oil leak. Loss of too much engine oil can result in loss of oil pressure and the engine could seize, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will replace the connector bolts to correct this concern.
