2013-14 Nissan Pathfinder, 2013 Infiniti JX35, 2014 Infiniti QX60 Recalled For Brake Issue

Nissan has issued a recall for the Nissan Pathfinder, the Infiniti JX35, and the Infiniti QX60. The recall stems from a flaw in the antilock brake system software -- a flaw that could result in an accident.

According to a bulletin from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the recall affects the following makes and models:

The bulletin says that "In the affected vehicles, during light braking on rough roads, the antilock brake system (ABS) brake pressure output software may lead to an increase in stopping distance". And of course, the longer it takes to stop a vehicle, the greater the likelihood of a crash.

NHTSA estimates that 151,695 Nissan and Infiniti vehicles are affected by the recall. We should point out that the 2013 Nissan Pathfinder and 2013 Infiniti JX are also being investigated for a potential transmission flaw.

Nissan hasn't given a timetable for sending out recall notices, but when it does, owners will be able to take their vehicles to Nissan dealers, who will reprogram the ABS for free.

If you own one of the affected vehicles, we encourage you to drive especially carefully, particularly on rough roads. Should you have specific questions about the recall, contact Nissan at 800-647-7261, or ring up NHTSA at 888-327-4236.
