Recall 13V445000

Braking Concern on Rough Roads

Recall Details

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.

Our Quick Take

Braking distance may be longer that expected during light brake pedal application on rough roads.

What Should You Do?

As of this writing, Nissan has not released a notification schedule for this recall. If you feel your vehicle should be included, please contact your dealer for further instruction. They may ask for your vehicle identification number (VIN), so please have it handy when you call.
