Recall 16V193000

Brakes Do Not Stop Effectively

Recall Details

The anti-lock brake system actuator may have a damaged o-ring that may result in a lack of brake fluid pressure control. This can result in extended stopping distances when braking, or erratic operation of the anti-lock brake system or vehicle dynamic control system. Dealers will inspect and replace the anti-lock brake system actuator as necessary free of charge to resolve the concern.

Our Quick Take

The brake system may not stop the vehicle effectively, or may operate erratically during events which trigger the anti-lock brake system or vehicle dynamic control system. This can cause extended stopping distances or loss of vehicle control, resulting in an accident.

What Should You Do?

Recalls on your Nissan must be performed by a Nissan dealership. Nissan will begin notifying known owners of affected vehicles in June, 2016. If you do 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.
