Recall 13V451000

Braking Ability Reduced

Recall Details

The brake master cylinder provides the hydraulic pressure to operate the braking system. The brake master cylinder may intermittently reduce the pressure supplied to the front brakes. This could result in increased stopping distance. Dealers will replace the master cylinder on affected vehicles free of charge to correct this concern.

Our Quick Take

The ability to apply proper pressure to the brake system may be reduced, requiring longer distance to stop the vehicle. This could cause risk of an accident.

What Should You Do?

Recalls on your Nissan must be performed by a Nissan dealership. Nissan began notifying known owners of affected vehicles beginning in October, 2013. If you did not receive a notification, but wish to check to see if your vehicle is included, please contact one of your local Nissan dealerships. They will also check for any other uncompleted recalls on your vehicle. For best results, be prepared to provide your Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) to the service department consultant you speak with.
