Recall roundup: 2013 Nissan Pathfinder and Infiniti JX image

The Japanese based automaker Nissan has recently announced a recall for the 2013 Pathfinder and for the Infiniti JX, because of an issue with the front main stoppers.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, a total of 19,258 units of the 2013 Nissan Pathfinder and Infiniti JX will be affected by this recall in the United States and their owners will have to take a trip back to the dealers because of an issue with the main stoppers. The affected vehicles have been produced between December 3, 2012, and January 29, 2013.

“Nissan is recalling certain model year 2013 Pathfinder and Infiniti JX vehicles manufactured December 3, 2012, through January 29, 2013. The front brake torque member was improperly cast resulting in structural weakness. This can lead to premature failure and cracking”, as the NHTSA is saying in its summary of the problem.

Owners will be notified soon and dealers will have to inspect the manufacturing date of the torque members. The recall is expected to begin in early May, 2013. In the meantime, if you own one of the vehicles mentioned above, produced between those dates, you should probably contact Nissan Customer Service at 1-800-647-7261 or the NHTSA hotline at 1-888-327-4236.
